Dayton Boots Adverts

Dayton Boots

August 7 to 19
Wednesday through Saturday


To compliment our presentation of Good Timber – Songs & Stories of the Western Logger, Dayton Boots have provided the Firehall with a number of their advert posters from over the years  to exhibit in the lobby gallery.

Dayton Boots are the logging boot, and have been handmade in Vancouver since 1946.  Charlie Wohlford started Dayton Boots in the winter of 1946, after gaining a reputation for repairing loggers’ boots to a better quality than when they were new. Dayton’s reputation for being the best made logging boot in the world quickly spread and soon became the brand name for everybody from loggers and men on tough construction jobs to rough necks in the oil patch as well as fire and police departments.
