I bought this loom for $70. It was badly in need of being refurbished. Raised varnish, water damage, and rust were evident, but not to the point of making it unable to be restored.
There was a Canadian Red Cross Society sticker on this loom…
Here are some links to Red Cross usage of looms. The first one sites a MB Weavers Guild member concerning the use of looms at Deer Lodge Centre (originally the Red Cross Arts and Crafts Centre), in Winnipeg:
Margaret Groff’s work at the Red Cross Arts and Craft Centre (later renamed Deer Lodge Centre) sparked her interest in learning to weave. (http://www.mbweavers.ca/about-us/our-history/)
And other Canadian Red Cross histories of looms on the internet:
