“Our favourite Canadian logos, preserved in the moment in time we felt they were at their best. Some of them are no longer in use, or have been updated, for better or worse.”
1976 Summer Olympics, by Georges Huel, more info on We Made This

There are quite a few logos I wouldn’t have included — Tour of The Universe, Hamilton Tiger Cats (1990) to name a couple — but I like the site idea, and there are plenty of classic designs on show (many of which include the names of the designers and the year of creation).
Canadian National Railway Company, 1960, by Allan Fleming (see the identity guidelines PDF)
Mercer Union, 1979
Canadian Centennial, 1967, by Stuart Ash
The full collection is an interesting mix of symbols, wordmarks, monograms, and illustration. Via AisleOne.

I did a book in the 70s called Lost Glory about the vanishing logos of the U.S. Railroads. Am now redoing it as they have virtually vanished altogether. Would like to keep in touch.
