Commentaires : In an advertisement in the Journal newspaper, the local newspaper in Summerside, PEI, states that" "BRAYCO" brand special Red Label Made-to-order English Fox Netting, made from high grade special annealed steel wire woven with extra twists in a mesh and galvanized…" this product could be purchased locally at Holman's Department Store, Summerside. It is likely that these rolls of wire are of the Brayco brand; they do contain the extra twists the company claims as a selling feature. " In the early days the housing was very different from what it is today. Enclosures probably twelve by sixteen and about eight feet high with a wire top all over them so the fox wouldn't come out. And at that time the foxes were on the ground. Just set on the ground. A wire trench built around with wire put down about two and a half feet in the ground so the foxes wouldn't burrow out under. But it also predisposed the foxes to contamination from parasites. So then they got the idea of putting them up off the ground and putting legs under the pens. I think it was back around 1921 R. Humphry from Kensington evolved the idea of a shed structure. He was the first to come up with that design using the fox shed. And so the foxes were under cover completely and protected from the sunlight and wind and the elements. He showed foxes in the Royal Winter Fair that year and practically cleaned up the show with his colour. So then everybody went to building sheds, that became the standard type of housing." Interview with Lloyd Lockerby, March 2003
