  • Notes 
    • J. Kaufman, Planing Mill, King Street - Among the prominent business houses in Berlin must be mentioned that of Mr. J. Kaufman, builder and contractor, and owner of the planning mill and lumber yards located on King Street. This business was established in 1877, since which time it has rapidly and steadily increased. The planning mill building is 45x70 feet in dimensions and two and a half stories in height. The lumber yards cover one and a half acres of ground, and a switch from the Grand Trunk Railway runs into it, thus affording Mr. Kaufman most excellent facilities for the receipt and shipment of his lumber and other goods, consisting of doors, sashes, window frames, blinds, and all descriptions of builders' materials, as well as the Paragon Fanning Mills, of which he is the manufacturer. He gives employment to 24 skilled workmen in the mill and fanning mill works, the later being 24x65 feet in dimensions and two stories in height. The works contain all the latest and most improved woodworking machinery, and a 20-horse power engine is used. Mr. Kaufman is a native of Canada, and a gentleman of business ability, push and enterprise. He is establishing a business, both in the lines mentioned and as a builder and contractor, that is a credit to himself and a source of prosperity to the town.1a
