Beautiful certificate from the McColl Frontenac Oil Company Limited issued no later than 1958. This historic document was printed Canadian Banknote Compnay and has an
ornate border around it with a vignette of an indian chief. This item has the printed signatures of the Company's President and Secretary and is over 50 years old.
McColl-Anderson Oil Company was formed in 1873 in Toronto, Ontario, and consisted of a refinery and a lubricating oil and grease facility. Sometime before 1897 the name was shortened to McColl Bros. In 1927 it merged with Frontenac Oil Refineries to become McColl-Frontenac Oil Company. By then it had operations coast-to-coast. Around this time the Texas Corporation began to buy shares in McColl-Frontenac and within a few years gained controlling interest in the company. It further strengthened its interests by having McColl-Frontenac buy the Texas Company of Canada which had operations in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
The McColl-Frontenac name and its Red Indian products were in use until 1941 when they were replaced by the Texaco name and its Sky Chief products.
