Commentaires : This circular lunch pail was designed for use mainly by train crews that worked local or yard assignments, expecting to be home each night, so didn't need the larger so-called "3-day lunch can" used by train crews operating out on the road and never too sure just how long the food in their lunch can may be expected to last. These wooden lunch cans apparently evolved from the use of the common the half-peck wooden grain measure to form the larger bottom section.
Fonctions : This circular lunch pail is believed to have been constructed about 1890. It was first used by HARTLEY CRAWFORD, a Canadian Pacific Employee in Saint John, NB. Mr. Crawford was killed in a yard switching accident in Lancaster (West Saint John) in the 1906 " 1908 circa. One of Mr. Crawford's relatives kept his lunch pail in the family. A relative had a son, Edson F. Raynes born in 1914. Mr. Raynes went to work for the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1928 as a "Call Boy" at Saint John. Mr. Raynes later went to work as a Locomotive Fireman, and eventually worked his way up to become a "Locomotive Engineer." About this time, Edson "NIMO" Raynes was given Mr. Crawford's circular lunch pail. "NIMO" used this circular lunch pail during his railway career with the Canadian Pacific Railway, mainly during the peak years of steam powered trains during and shortly after World War II. Mrs. Raynes, recalled that "NIMO" always like to have some molasses cookies and doughnuts in his lunch pail. As an interesting footnote, "NIMO" was honoured on June 4, 1989, when CPR steam locomotive #1201 was brought to Saint John as part of the CPR's 100th Anniversary Celebrations. On this occasion, "NIMO" was at the throttle of #1201 to take from Saint John to Lancaster. On this occasion, "NIMO" had his "Circular Lunch Pail" with him and as he noted: He experienced having his first lady fireman, "Helen Tucker" firing #1201 for him.
