      The First Incubator

      John Winger's pumpshop rested where George Potter's block now stands. Mr. Winger made pumps and broom-handles. In 1860 he leased part of the building to a group of American refugees for a cut-tobacco works. George Randall afterward bought the works and engaged Ralph Chamberlain as manager. Still later Wm. Oelschlager and Henry F. J. Jackson purchased the business and built a factory near the corner of Waterloo and Victoria Streets. Mr. Winger's incubator housed also Simpson & Aldous's furniture enterprise and Matthias Wegenast's sash, door, and washboard works.
