  • Notes 
    • David Saunders, Saddlery and Harness, Main Street - The house whose name heads this article has earned the distinction of being an energetic, reliable and conscientious concern for manufacturing first-class harness, etc., the policy being conducted in accordance with the old maxim, that "what is worth doing at all is worth doing well," and as a consequence has built up a trade that not only includes the town of Galt, but the surrounding country as well. The business was founded eight years ago, and since its inception it has steadily increased in reputation and extent, until to0day it has an enviable name for the high quality of goods manufactured. The premises occupied are 22x50 feet in dimensions and two stories in height. Five skilled workmen are given employment in turning out the very best description of single and double harness and saddles, which for elegance, style and lightness, durability and general excellence, are not to be excelled here or elsewhere. In addition to manufacturing, Mr. Saunders carries in stock a full assortment of whips, horse blankets, curry-combs, brushes, and all other necessary stable accessories. Mr. Saunders is a native of Scotland, and has resided in this country for 43 years, and is an energetic, enterprising and persevering business man, and one held in high esteem in the community for his many excellent social and business qualities.
