Scope and content

File consists of photographs of vehicles from Life Savers & Beech-Nut Sale Company Limited, located at 225 Sanford Ave S. Life Savers Limited first operated in Canada at Prescott, Ontario, in 1916. In 1932, Life Savers bought out the Beech-Nut company of Canada, and the two companies amalgamated and began production in Hamilton in 1932. The original factory was at the corner of Cumberland and Sanford Avenue. A new building was erected in 1951 and was the only Life Savers plant in Canada, which produced millions of boxes of candy annually. In 2004, after more than 80 years of candy-making history in Hamilton, production of the candy ended.
