An original 1966 stereo laminated front slick manufactured by Parrs in Toronto for the Yesterday And Today LP from June of 1966. These of course were never used for the LP in Canada as they were all withdrawn. Only two of these Canadian butcher sales slicks are know to exist. This one has 3 punch holes as it was used in a sales reps binder.
Many thanks to Brian Schofield, the lucky owner for letting us use this image.
