  • Notes 
    • Victoria Wheel Works

      The extensive factory on Main Street manufactures all kinds of carriage materials, wheels, finished shafts and poles, plow handles, etc. This is one of the largest businesses of its kind in Western Canada. It was established in 1860, and has been a success from the start, now employing some forty hands. The extensive concern covers a ground space of three acres, including the warehouse on Queen Street. The goods manufactured by the firm find their way to all parts of the Dominion and even to Australia. The firm is composed of Robt. Scott, Esq., and his son J.H. Scott. Both gentlemen are natives of Galt, and the son may be said to have grown up in the business, and is equally with his father familiar with it in all its details. Not only as a manufacturer, but as a citizen Mr. R. Scott has always taken a deep interest in all matters tending to the advancement of Galt. The high esteem in which he is held by his fellow citizens is shown by the fact that repeatedly he has been the choice of the people to fill important and representative positions, having served in the Council and filled the mayor's chair with credit to himself and honor to the town, and at the present time has the honor of being the first mayor of Rossland, B.C.1a
