The Canmore Museum & Geoscience Centre needs your help! We’re investigating some unknown objects in the collection and are looking for any information you may have about them. Every week, we’ll be posting a new case. If you have any information about the objects, please contact Collections Manager, Amanda Sittrop, at email@example.com.
This Canmore Coal Briquette Advertising mould is made of blue plastic, with a grey cloth material on the back. Briquettes were made using fine coal pieces mixed with the adhesive bitumen, also known as asphalt. They were then pressed into rounded squares. Did you ever see advertisements for Canmore briquettes? Did you work in the plant where they were made? Visit the Museum and tell us your story.
