Default Greetings from Canada

I hail from Ontario, Canada. I first got cast iron as I figured it would be more durable for camping, as cast iron always survived my Dad's cooking. Non stick pans do not fare well on my camp stove. Naturally I ended up using it at home as my goto fry pan.

From there, I've accumulated three other pieces ... two from an auto parts shop in their "surplus" area, one from my mom which may have come from my mom's mom.

I'd like some help IDing the one from my mom. I know it's from General Steel Wares in Ontario, Canada, post 1927. Here is a picture of it. Does anyone have an idea as to it's age? I've no interest in selling it, so I'm not particularly concerned about it's resale value.

If this is the wrong forum for this, please let me know where it should go and I'll move there.

The only pieces that I have seen from GSW are skillets and wood handled skillets. I wonder if they made other pieces.
