McGill Chair Co. Ltd., Cornwall, Ontario.

Black lyre back McGill Chair Co. Ltd., chair.  The firm had this name from 1905 until it reorganised in 1913.

The chair was acquired in 1991.

Golden hardwood, “Samson” style 40, McGill Chairs Ltd., ca, 1925.

Designed to be extra strong, this Samson proved to be no match for the donor’s grandchildren who managed to break the back.

Donated in 2014.
