Old Imperial Sewing Machine Ads in Canada

Call me crazy, but as the self-appointed archivist for Imperial sewing machines on the internet, I thought it would be great to display some ads from Eatons and Simpsons, here in Canada. These ads are from the 1960s, and are really good for time dating your machine. I thank the Library and Archives Canada for posting these resources online, for the betterment of the world. Note that the Archive only has specific years, namely 1965, 1967, 1968, 1971, 1975, so this limits how well we can date Imperial sewing machines here in Canada. If you have another source please let me know and I will research it. “Sewing machine” in French is “machine à coudre”, if you are searching.

Since I became the self-appointed custodian of Imperial sewing machine information on the Internet I have had a slew of great posts and comments that have helped a lot of people with their old machines. This is how the internet should work: To reach out and help others learn what you know. A reader has sent me her user manual for the Imperial sewing machine, model 562, and I thank her for her contribution.
