The wood for this twist-style pen with black ink came from the grounds of the West Park Lodge in Weston, Ontario, previously known as the Toronto Tuberculosis Sanatorium. Originally, in 1913 the hospital was called Queen Mary Hospital and was the first hospital in the world to be exclusively for children with tuberculosis. It closed in 1970 and 4 years later the West Park Hospital was opened on the site.
Crafted in CANADA.
