  • Notes 
    • Scotts' Planing Mill, William & F.A. Scott, Mill Street - The above mentioned house is fully entitled to prominent mention in this work, for being one of the longest established and leading houses in Galt in the manufacture of sash, doors, blinds and builders' materials. The business was established 45 years ago by Mr. James Scott, father of the present proprietors. The plant of the house consists of lumber yards, 40x100 feet in dimensions, upon which is the mill proper, 40x80 feet in dimensions and two stories in height. The mill is provided with the very best of latest improved wood-working machinery and a steam engine of 30-horse power, as well as water supply, the motive power for the machinery; and employment is provided for 20 skilled operatives. The products of the house comprise all articles that properly come under the heading of wood-working machinery. The firm are also contractors and builders, and have erected many of the handsome dwellings which adorn the town, while their work is acknowledged to be of the very best and most complete in its every detail. The members of the firm, Messrs. Wm. and F.A. Scott, have conducted the business for the past 11 years, and have had many years practical experience in the trade. They are natives of Galt, and are industrious and progressive business men, thoroughly wide-awake and alive to all the requirements of their business, and are held in the highest esteem in the community.1a
