  • Notes 
    • "As we turn our steps northward we behold the old stone building on Kerr Street, known as the late Colonel Peck's Malt House, with its two high kiln cupolas, which used to send forth steam from malted barley being dried into malt for making beer; the property now being known as the Malleable Iron Works. In those days, from eighty thousand to one hundred thousand bushels of barley were converted in one season into malt, most of which was exported to New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Baltimore, some going to Montreal and to the old city of Quebec. Most of the barley came from the country surrounding Galt from North and South Dumfries, Puslinch, Beverly, Wilmot and Waterloo Townships. In those days, barley constituted a big part of the farm crops which we do not find today. Why? Because the temperance wave practically killed the trade in that product and forced the farmers to raise other crops of much less value."
