A really cool set of dominoes

I have long been meaning to start acquiring some vintage games to add to my rental collection and I finally started things off with this set of dominoes, which are stored in an equally cool cigar box.  A little handwritten note was taped to the inside of the box and reads as follows:  “Alma Dietrich’s Dad (Henry) had these dominoes in his “play” room over the Dietrich Bakery on King St. Kitchener 1899″  A google search didn’t turn up anything about the bakery, but I did find some info on one H. A. Dietrich, born 1865, occupation:  baker and later elected as a Alderman for Kitchener, ON.  I love it when the things I find have a back story, it just makes them so unique and special!
