  • Notes 
    • The C. Turnbull Co., Ltd.

      Of the many manufacturing enterprises that go to make the Town of Galt famous abroad as a manufacturing centre few, if any, have contributed in so large a degree as the one above mentioned. The product of the company consists of lambs' wool underclothing, hosiery, knitting yarns, etc. and one would have to search the Dominion through to find a larger or more complete establishment of its kind, or one better fitted with the latest and most improved machinery for turning out first-class goods in their line. The commodious buildings occupied by this firm are situated on North Water Street and West Main Street, together covering a large tract of ground space. The factories give employment to over one hundred hands, and were opened in 1859 by Turnbull & Deans. The present joint stock company was formed in 1890 and own all the property they occupy, and their goods are found in all parts of the Dominion. The capital stock of the Company is fifty thousand dollars. Mr. C. Turnbull is a native of Galt, and is a young man full of vim and is one of Galt's best citizens.1a
