  • Notes 
    • L. Graybill & Co., Carriages, Sleighs, etc., King St. - There are many carriage makers in this section of the country, and, to their credit be it said, the majority of them produce excellent work, substantial and well finished, and it is no disparagement to them to say that the firm of L. Graybill & Co. are among the very first in their line in this section. This firm have their premises located on King Street, Waterloo, which are 38x60 feet in dimensions and two stories in height, where employment is furnished to 14 competent and skilled workmen, who are under the immediate supervision of the proprietors, who are themselves practical workmen. The firm manufacture all kinds of carriages, sleighs, buggies, hearses, 'buses, and sleighs of all kinds. A specialty is made of the Patent Reversible Single and Double Seated Sleigh - a marvel of simplicity and convenience. They are particular that nothing but the very best of material is used and well tested in the different processes of manufacture, and the finish of each vehicle is all that the most critical could demand. The trade of the firm extends throughout the Dominion, and they also do an export trade, but do not sacrifice their Dominion business for the sake of filling all foreign orders. Mr. Graybill, the senior member of the firm, is a native of Canada, and has served in the Council for seven years. Mr. John R. Kauffman, the other member of the firm, is a native of Oxford county, Ontario. Both gentlemen are capable, enterprising and wide-awake business men.1a
