  • Notes 
    • GEO. C. H. LANG,
      PRESIDENT OF THE LANG TANNING Co., Limited.


      Mr. Geo. C. H. Lang, the President of the Lang Tanning Co., is one of Berlin' most prominent citizens and business men. Born in Berlin in 1851, he became a partner in, and manager of the firm of R. Lang & Son in 1873. Under Mr. Lang's guidance the business has grown enormously as can be readily gathered from a glance at the views on another page, showing the premises in 1876 and in 1906, respectively. The Lang Tanning Co. manufactures harness leather and are by long odds the biggest people in their line in Canada. Their output supplies about one half of the entire Canadian trade. Their plant, which was recently enlarged is readily conceded to be one of the best, if not the best equipped on the American Continent. Mr. Lang represented Berlin in the County Council for a number of years, serving most acceptably as Chairman of the Educational committee. He has been president and manager of his company since 1893.
