Northern Commerical Co. 1917 Calendar
San Francisco: International Printing Co. 1917. () Very good. Colour calendar on heavy cardstock. 21" X 14". Occasional, very light chipping to edges. Corners rounded. Full calendar pad (Jan - Dec) present with penciled notation in most days. Top corner missing (1" X 0.5") from January page. Original string hanger present. Colours bright and unfaded. A scarce advertising calendar for the Northern Commercial Company (N.C.Co.), a retail company which maintained rural village stores across Alaska and in the Yukon. N.C.Co also operated steamships through Alaskan trade routes. The image on the poster features a small steamship and the construction of a new camp at "Ruby, Alaska." Two totem poles on either side of the calendar pad list several stations of the N.C.Co., including Fairbanks, Dawson Yukon Territory, Bettles, Iditarod, and many others. The verso of the calendar is a full-page map of Alaska showing sea routes and locations of N.C.Co posts. A later incarnation of the business still maintains 30 stores across rural Alaska. See two other examples in this catalogue. See cover illustration..
