Vintage historic food & drink packaging and the companies behind them from Toronto’s early days. From the exiting new book Packaged Toronto!
Researcher and writer Jamie Bradburn will talk about historical food and drink packaging and the companies behind them as featured in a new book from the publishers of Spacing magazine: Packaged Toronto: A Collection of the City’s Historic Design.
In Packaged Toronto, Spacing’s writers teamed up with City of Toronto museum curators to reveal a treasure trove of early local package design from the City’s vast collection. Through detailed photography and historical essays focused on an underserved period of Canadian design, Packaged Toronto takes readers on a journey back in time to the period between 1870 and 1950 to witness the emergence of the city’s aesthetic. Jamie Bradburn focuses on some of the companies and products from this period, from Mr. Christie’s Cookie Tin for Soldiers to Harry Horne’s Double Cream Custard Powder, and much more.
