  • Notes 
    • Elliott Soap Works, J.& R. Elliott, Harris Street - "Where there is life, there's soap," is a new version of an old adage, but a true one nevertheless. Soap is one of the many necessary articles required in everyday life. Among the varied manufacturing industries in Galt, the Elliott Soap and Candle Works stand alone in their special line. The business of this concern has been established for over 30 years, the present firm coming into possession 6 years ago, succeeding Dixon, who succeeded Simpson, who succeeded Oliver, etc. The premises occupied are 34x106 feet in dimensions and 1 ½ stories in height, being substantially built of stone. There is one vat having a capacity of 16,000 lbs. of soap; there are also the necessary moulds, presses, etc., and a six-horse-power engine, used for pumping water. The special brands of soap manufactured - which are all laundry - are: "Pure," "Free Trade," "Sultana," "Dominion" and "Electric." The trade of the concern, which is excellent and steadily increasing, goes from London, Walkerton, St. Catharines, Brantford and Toronto, and all intermediate sections. Employment is furnished to four competent workmen. Messrs. Elliott are natives of Canada, and are active energetic and enterprising business men, and are on the sure road to business success.
