Throwback Thursday - Interior of Ontario Malleable Iron Works, c. 1918


Located on Front St. (just north of the 401 today), and taking 10 acres of land, the Ontario Malleable Iron Company produced malleable castings, which included heavy castings (i.e.: agricultural implements and machine castings) and light castings of every description. Interior view of a section of the plant, with various employees at work (most identified). During this time the main production output was lead (between 1914-1918).
