Firestone Tire Advertisement, 1946

Vancouver Island Transportation History

We came across this 1946 Victoria newspaper advertisement for Firestone tires.

Note the “Tire Rationing Removed” in the upper right corner; tires had been rationed during World War II (1939-1945). Also note the list of Firestone dealers at the bottom. These businesses are now gone but some of the buildings remain.
