My father worked on the floor of the TSE from the age of 16 until about 1985, and I inherited these stock certificates from him in 1993.  I had the box out today, so took some photos for anyone that might find them interesting.

Cheers, Breanna

Thanks Doc!! The old industrial certificates are the real collector items.

Very cool: I like the photo of the TSE in the fifties (or perhaps earlier).

Thank you!  The photo is stamped on the back as taken in 1954.  All transactions were done with paper back then.  I love the fashion for the time.  Every Sunday after church my dad would lay out newspaper and polish all of his shoes for the week -- the old fashioned way.  Always said "Hunny, you can always tell the 'measure of a man' by his shoes!"  :D

On another note -- the Kendrige Red Lake stock certificate was printed by the Canadian Bank Note Company and has the same raised ink characteristics of our older currency.
