Advertising & Historic Objects Auction, December 7th
An Advertising & Historic Objects auction featuring the collection of John McKenty – the Canadian historian and author whose collection tells the story of the rise and fall of the Canada Cycle & Motor Company of Canada – will be held on Saturday, December 7th, by Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd., online and in the firm’s New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada gallery. Mr. McKenty will give a special presentation on Friday evening, December 6th, at 7 pm Eastern. “Canada Cycle & Motor Company was one of the most recognizable Canadian companies of the 20th century,” said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions. “When John McKenty stumbled across an old CCM catalogue while researching the history of a local hardware store, he was hooked. John has worked tirelessly to preserve a story that was in danger of being lost forever.” The 561-lot live auction has a start time of 9 am Eastern. Online bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com, plus the Miller & Miller website, at www.millerandmillerauctions.com. Phone (519-662-4800) and absentee bids will be accepted. Previews will be held on Friday, December 6th, from 6-9 pm Eastern time (with the presentation by Mr. McKenty at 7 pm) and on auction day, Saturday, December 7th, when doors open at 8 am. Folks can pre-bid live online at www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com.
