History Of Use
Cloth bags such as this one contained products commonly used in households, and often the bags would be recycled for household textiles and clothing. Purity Flour was first milled during Canada’s “wheat boom” in 1905 by the Western Canada Flour Mills Company, who became the largest flour milling company in Canada.
