ApparentlyAccording to my mom, Grandad Rice worked at Carmichael's in Victoria. He was blackballed for doing silversmith work at home on the side. Apparently, the blackball is what led him to move to America and get the work for Linstead, reprised here. My mom also wrote the item, below, on the back of the card.
UPDATE: I searched Google for information on Carmichael. There's a good link story, here. Carmichael was born and raised in Victoria. There are some of their pieces in the BC Provincial Museum.
