Special Rare Piece of Canadian History to be SoldOutright@Auction

North West Commercial Travellers’ Association Est. 1882


The North West Commercial Travellers’ Association came into being in 1882 and celebrated the 100th Anniversary in 1982.

The Building that became home to the Association was located at 291 Gary Street, Winnipeg Manitoba. The Building was formally recognized as a Historical Canadian Building June 27th, 2002. The Building was erected in 1908 and altered in 1914 and 1916 as reported by an article that can be found on Historical Places in Canada. Our story is taken from many Historical Writings about this amazing Organization.

The Association offered Members Extensive Benefits in Winnipeg and Calgary and throughout the West as these “Fellows” travelled constantly away from home. Life was difficult and travel was hard through all seasons.

A fellow named John McWilliam’s Authored a book named “Nothing Happens Until a Sale is Made”. The Book Title is so true and seems to be rather rare. The writing is most likely an excellent historical description of what it was like selling goods in the Canadian West.

“ SoldOutright” Offers at Auction the Actual Presentation Gift of Historical Memorabilia presented in 1982 at the 100th Birthday of this Prestigious and Historical Organization. It is an incredible piece of Canadian History.
