Gorham Polar Expedition Spoon.

This spoon has the heaviest detail of any souvenir spoon I have ever seen, both in person and in pictures. It had 100 years of tarnish when I found it.

There is a Pattern Number listed on the spoon of 911, but that must be more of an internal factory code, because I can't imagine this spoon was extrapolated into an entire pattern.

ARCOLA SASKATCHEWAN by Caron Freres (Brothers) Montreal

A typical small townsite spoon along a major rail line (Canadian Pacific) made more interesting by the fact that a movie was later made here about the hardships of life on the plains as experienced during the not-so-sterling years of the Great Depression..an event which co-incides with the closing of business by Caron Freres.
