Notes: c.1900; eng. by Habbin, Detroit; "The above cut shows a view of the Walkerville Malleable Iron Company, Limited, who established their works in 1890, the buildings and grounds comprising an area of over three acres of ground. The Company has excellent shipping facilities, being in close connection with four different Railroads and Lake Steamers. The bulk of the castings made are for Agricultural and Railroad purposes, but a specialty is made of light grey Iron Castings, their reputation for first class work being second to none on the continent. At the present time they are making improvements which will materially add to the capacity of the plant and enable them to take care of their increasing business. The number of hands employed is about 175. The officers of the Company are E. C. Walker, President; F. H. Walker, Vice-President; R. H. Frees, Manager; and Alfred Miers, Secretary and Treasurer"
