If you wanted to start a new business, or supplement your existing one,  during the Second World War it was necessary to apply for a commercial license with the Wartime Prices and Trade Board. This document is what a commercial license for retail and services would have looked like, in this case, granted to Herb's Electric Service in Coldwater, Ontario.
