Foxes were big money, as the Montreal fox show champions of 1920, a couple called Jack and Frances Canuck, was sold for $2,500.
The wearing of animal furs, complete with head, was a surprisingly enduring style and Montreal was deemed the continent's fur capital, and in 1945 one auction saw 45,000 fox furs among the 2,000,000 furs sold.
The style managed to keep in vogue until the mid 1950s at least.
