We used to make things in this country. #88: Canadian Wooden Aircraft, Stratford Ontario

About 1980 someone gave the family a dining set (as shown but painted dark blue) with the explanation that they had been made from surplus plywood after WW2 from de Havilland Mosquito manufacturing.  I'm not sure that was completely true but this furniture was made by Canadian Wooden Aircraft of Stratford Ontario just after the war. Design by Waclaw Czerwinski and Hilary Stykolt.
