Canning Factory, Essex, Ont.
Mike Skreptak Collection; Box 2
Postmarked 1911; addressed to Miss Rhea Couttes; this building which housed the canning factory c. 1911 was originally called the Essex Centre Manufacturing Company, and then, the Essex Industrial Works. The building was erected in 1884. Harrington and Milne, Engine And Boiler Works, provided power to other tenants in the building. There was a foundry in the rear. John Milne, who also owned the Essex Free Press, had an office on the 1st (middle) floor - at the near end (first door). The building contained the Essex Free Press Steam Printing House; located on the east side of Talbot Street, between Gordon Avenue and Arthur Avenue. The Canning Factory may just have been one of the tenants.
