|Summary, etc.:|| Chiefly colour & black and white photographs (and drawings) from the early history of the Hudson's Bay Company - as a fur trade company - to retail store and modern fashion. "Hudson's Bay Company has shaped the history and culture of Canada for more than 300 years. As the company evolved from fur traders and settlers to contemporary fashion leaders, the men and women of The Bay have left their mark on both the country and its people. Where canny Scots once traded blankets and tools with First Nations trappers in exchange for beaver pelts, today this retailer brings the best and brightest of the world's fashion to a discerning clientele. The merchandise may be different, but the mission is the same: to deliver what is new, what is exciting, and what is cutting-edge. From arctic exploration to the settlement of the West to the creation of a modern retail empire, the history of Hudson's Bay Company is a tapestry of richness and diversity. It's a brand Canadians recognize instantly, from the multicolored stripes of its Point Blanket to The Bay's ribbon banner. Here, in more than 200 illustrations, discover the brand's iconic past and how it continues to shape trends and tastes today. With a foreword by Graydon Carter."--publisher.
