Scope and content

This series contains correspondence to, and beginning in 1924, from, the Dominion Chair Company. Records are from businesses and individuals, and illustrate how their business was conducted in the late 19th through mid-20th century, including style of discourse, volume and variety of orders both incoming and outgoing, processes such as debt retrieval and exporting, acquiring start-up capital, etc. The correspondence series provides a succinct yet comprehensive overview of customer relations, product popularity and availability, as well as insight as to the inner workings of the factory. The series also illustrates the scope of Dominion Chair Co.'s business, with letters not only from throughout Canada but also the United Kingdom, West Indies, Australia, South Africa, and other predominantly British Empire locales.
