  • Notes 
    • August Hertle, Planning Mill, King Street East - Among the many industries which tend to make up the importance of Berlin as a manufacturing centre is that of the manufacture of sash, doors, blinds, etc. Holding a front place among those engaged in this line of industry is Mr. August Hertle, whose shop is located on King Street East. The premises occupied are 45x50 feet in dimensions and three stories in height, being a frame building. Here employment is furnished to 11 skilled workmen throughout the year, the number being increased according to the season and the pressure of business. Mr. Hertle manufactures all kinds of sash, doors, blinds, and all kinds of builders' furnishings. He also utilizes part of the power to run a feed chopping mill, which is a great convenience to those keeping horses in the vicinity. Mr. Hertle is also a contractor and builder, and does considerable work in this line around town and country, throughout which section his business extends. He is a practical workman, and superintends all work done before it is permitted to leave his establishment, thus ensuring satisfaction to his customers, and still further building up his reputation for capability and skill. He is a native of Canada though of German extraction, and is, like his country-men who have built up Berlin to its present proportions, a valuable and honoured citizen.
