    • 112 Benton Street

      The Arrow shirt factory occupying the block south of St. George Street is a Bauhaus style 4-storey concrete building with industrial infill brick and metal framed glazing bays, and is an example of the "daylight factory" popularized by American architect Albert Kahn. It was built in 1913 for Williams, Greene & Rome when they outgrew their Queen and Courtland building. Near original in appearance and in very good condition, there is a later red brick addition and parking lot to the south. An excellent example of the conservation of an historic factory building.1a
