Dominion Crayon Company
Lindsay, Ontario, Canada
1930s

History

 

There is no history to be found for the Dominion Crayon Company.  However, their company hails from Lindsay, the same location as that of Canada Crayon Co.  This appears to be another independent smaller brand that clustered nearby the only other known crayon company in Lindsay.  The same thing happened in Easton, PA where Crayola is headquartered.  At one point there were three separate crayon companies operating in that small town.  These look to be designs from the 1920s or 1930s but might be even as late as the 1940s.  They were around at least long enough to have two different designs for their crayon products; one with windows and one without.
