This is a real rare piece of history. My mom found this up at our local museum in Delia, and it is from our Federal Grain elevator, which originally a Alberta Pacific, which Federal took over in 1967. Alberta Wheat Pool took over Federal in 1972 (along with Saskatchewan Pool and Manitoba Pool).
Sadly though, the elevator was torn down in the 1990's, but this little matchbook is a reminder of the elevator company which existed from 1929 - 1972.
