  • Notes 
    • Brown, Wright & Co., Manufacturers of Slippers, Shoes, etc., Queen Street - The largest manufactures of boots, shoes and slippers in Berlin are the firm of Messrs. Brown, Wright & Co., whose manufactory and warehouse are located on Queen Street. The business was established as recently as 1884, but has increased rapidly. The handsome shoes and slippers made by this house have a wide spread reputation throughout the Dominion for excellence of quality and finish, in both of which points they are not excelled by any house in the Dominion. The premises occupied consist of a three story brick building, 30x80 feet in dimensions, and with a spacious basement. Here employment is furnished to 50 skilled hands, who are kept constantly employed in manufacturing goods to fill the orders which are being received daily from all parts of the country. The works contain all the latest and most improved machinery used in this line of manufacture, and the engine is a 10-horse power. The premises are well equipped in every respect, well lighted and ventilated, due regard being paid to the health of the operatives. Of the members of this firm, Mr. Brown, the senior partner, is a native of England, as is also Mr. Wright, while Mr. Whiting, the other partner, is a Canadian by birth. These gentlemen are true representatives of what business men should be; they are active, progressive and enterprising, and are held in the highest respect in the community.1a
