  • Notes 
    • The Gore Fire Insurance Co.

      Among the many institutions of which Galt boasts, none are more conspicuous than the Gore Ins. Co.'s palatial and imposing structure situated on the corner of Main and Ainslie Streets. The style is of the Romanesque character, and is build with Connecticut brown-stone rock-faced base up to the first storey window sills; above this it is faced with brown pressed brick, tooled portage entry stone trimmings and Terra Cotta carvings. The corner of Main and Ainslie Streets is round, having over the main entrance a heavily moulded arch, supported on two Doric columns, and over the arch the Company's name carved in mediaeval letters. This round corner is continued up above the roof, forming a round tower, roofed with Spanish tiles and terminating in a columned and octagon lantern, with ogee top and flag staff. Total height from the side-walk about eighty-two feet. The Gore has about 125 active agents through Ontario.
