So now that the office has been painted, I'm one step closer to getting the Wall O' Canadiana done. Just need to frame a few things and it should be good to go. As I've amassed items I've realized that I can have a Wall O' Canadiana and a Wall O' Londonana. I love having bits of local history - and I want to start collecting Victor Aziz postcards to add to the London collection. The other day, I was at Talize looking for some frames and came across this little sketch of the London Airport for $2.99. I thought it would fit in just perfectly - not only was it a London landmark, but it was also in a wooden frame, which was what I was looking for.
So then imagine my surprise and delight a couple of days later when I headed over to Value Village looking for more wooden frames and came across this similar sketch of Eldon House.
Now this one is a little different - it says "From the CFPL Radio Print Collection" in the lower right corner, which is exciting because now I want to know how many are in this series since I obviously want them all. I asked my friend Dan about them, since he's worked for the London Free Press for years, but he didn't know anything about them either. I may have to make some trips to a couple of libraries to see if I can dig up any information about this print collection. In the meantime though I thought I would see if any of you internet people know anything about it - have you ever seen anything similar? Maybe your parents have some? Or your grandparents? If so, I'm coming over to steal them.
