Alberta Beer Globes


Early in the 20th century, electricity was new on the prairies and the local breweries helped hotels advertise that they had the modern convenience  by giving them globes to put over a standard fixture.  Alberta is the only location that I have ever seen advertising globes of the 9 inch diameter size.  Ontario and some US states have a larger version of these beer globes.

I have only seen globes from 3 breweries  Calgary, Medicine Hat and Edmonton but perhaps there is a Lethbridge one out there I have never seen.
