Northwest coast Indian artefacts were firmly entrenched in a thriving and competitive commercial market by the early 1880's. Many of the established 'curio shops', such as those in Victoria in British Columbia began to sell alongside their antique ethnographica, craftworks made by the Northwest coast Indians such as model canoes, boats, houses and totem poles to satisfy an increasing demand by visitors for souvenirs.
