As a Canadian history written in 1941, the content is about what you'd expect, with illustrations by Canadian artists, but it turns out that the book was commissioned by the Montreal-based Seagrams company, one of the largest purveyors of alcoholic beverages and apparently, by the production of this book, a proud Canadian company. The book was apparently available for the asking, even- as the below letter states- into 1966. I just can't imagine a corporation producing a book like this in this day and age.

Reader Graeme sends in this picture of Len and Harry having fun posing for the camera. Year unknown. Someone has retouched the photo so the badges read Invincible ( I think) but Graeme asks the make of the machine, it's a V twin with carb on the left hand side, by that and details on the fork, I'd guess it's a prewar Harley Davidson outfit.
