obscure bag?

Any info known about a speed bag with a stenciled name of Baker on it? genuine leather....

There was a thread I found with the search function on a Baker bag in Canada a member was asking about. But no details about the bag.

Obscure isn't the word for it. It's one of those ghosts that has left no trail what so ever. Spent several hours trying to pin down the brand and maker to no avail. Canada didn't really have a "golden age" of boxing equipment that occurred in the US. The business was just beginning to take off when the Great Depression hit, and by the mid 1930's three quarters of the Canadian makers were out of business. There was some resurgence during the Second World War (supplying the military with training gear), but only the strongest firms still existed to meet the demand
