Lot Report


Dominion Tar and Chemical Company, Ltd., was founded in 1903, which first operated as a coal tar distillation plant in Nova Scotia. As Canada's economy industrialized, they continued to expand and became known as Domtar Inc. in 1977. Domtar was known for stamping a variety of safety messages on bricks for their employees to see. These two say "Live Safely" and "Drive Safely".

About the Artist:
Cat is an ardent creative and passionate drummer and inventive photographer with a love for reviving history. Citybonez™ pays photographic homage to our stately skeleton bricks manufactured by brickyards dating back to 1889, offering a glimpse into our collective architecture. Digging through the cast offs from dilapidated structures, she exhumes the mud bones of what once was.
