Glenwood Trading Company

Glenwood Trading Company Ltd., operated a mail-order, retail business supplying Canadian ‘Hams’ with a variety of equipment, books and supplies.

Their catalogues were about 50 pages including the cover and measured 7 1/2″ X 10 1/2″.

Glenwood’s start and ending dates of operation are not known at this time. If anyone has information about the company, or other information about them, please let us know.

These catalogues date to 1982 – 1984 and tell us much about the state of the art of Canadian Ham Radio equipment and prices in that era.

These catalogues were purchased from “Mario the Tube Man” at the Durham Hamfest of April 18, 2018.
