About this Item

[10], 171, [3] pages. Illustrations. Bookplate, from the Lord Elgin Hotel Company Limited, related to this book inside the front cover. DJ worn, torn, and missing half of spine from the bottom. Chester Everett Pickering, OBE was born September 11, 1881 in Blackstone Massachusetts and died in Ottawa in 1983 aged just short of 102 years old. He came to Canada in 1908 to found a cleaning materials manufacturing firm famous for a floor sweeping compound called Dustbane. The energetic efforts of Mr. Pickering resulted in Dustbane being made available rapidly from coast to coast in Canada. During his lifetime the company expanded its product line and became a significant supplier of an integrated line of cleaning materials and services. Dustbane recently celebrated its own centenary and still operates in Canada under the direction of Mr. John French, whose family acquired the firm following the death of Mr. Pickering. Mr. Pickering established his firm's headquarters in The City of Ottawa and became a Canadian citizen soon after his arrival in Canada. "Pick" as he was known to his friends, became active in politics serving on City Council and Board of Control from 1939 until 1950. Chester Everett Pickering was responsible for building the Lord Elgin Hotel, and how the hotel was founded and its operating philosophy is recounted in Chapter 12 of these memoirs. From the very beginning the Lord Elgin Hotel began as the centerpiece of a grand plan to create a captivating capital city during the early years of World War II. Bookseller Inventory # 74672
