C. L. Lehman

C.L. "Chas" Lehman was a prolific inventor and astute businessman operating out of Edmonton during the first half of the 20th century. Lehman, unlike scores of other independent inventors not financed by large corporations, managed to make a living from his inventions.

Furnace Arriving in Canada from England in 1915 and already an inventor, he turned his inventive spirit to the developing field of gas and heating. Soon he was selling his own patented water heaters, thermostats and furnace burners to a willing Edmonton public. During his career he patented almost 20 inventions, mostly relating to heating and plumbing. As testament of his salemanship and quality product, Lehman's store was in business for more than 50 years.
