We love it when these older Canadian tourism buttons become part of our collections. You seldom see illustrated artwork used on buttons or in print to advertise places or things now a days, so when we find these buttons we cherish them greatly.

There is something whimsical to this style of button artwork that perhaps reminds us of simpler times when things moved a bit slower, less was more and things were more appreciated and not so quickly forgotten.

We have showcased a handful of these pin-back buttons from our collection through out the years, with collections from tourism campaigns in Atlantic Canada to the Prairies, we promise to step up our efforts to track down and show off more of these awesome historic trinkets of Canadiana to our audience.
