      B. H. Ziegler,
      Carriage and Waggon Maker, King Street East - In reviewing the commercial and manufacturing industries of Berlin the fact is brought to light that there are many business houses that had been founded by the early settlers still in existence. Among the number and worthy of special notice is that of Mr. B.H. Ziegler, carriage manufacturer, of King Street East. This business was established over thirty-five years ago by Mr. E. Ziegler, father of the present proprietor, who conducted the same successfully for twenty years, and then his son having arrived at manhood's years, the father turned it over to him, although Mr. E. Ziegler is still actively engaged in the work. Mr. E. Ziegler has resided in Berlin over forty years, and was one of the first councillors when the place was incorporated as a village. He has also served on the School Board, and was at one time a Dominion License Commissioner. He is a gentleman highly honoured in the community for his many excellent qualities of head and heart. Mr. B.H. Ziegler, who has now conducted the business for the past fifteen years, makes all kinds of carriages, buggies, sleighs, wagons, carts and everything that comes under the head of carriage or wagon building. The premises occupied by him for the works are 30x50 feet in dimensions and two stories in height, where he gives employment to eight skilled workmen. Mr. Ziegler manufactures the carriage in its entirety, from iron and wood in the rough to the finished article. His trade extends throughout the Province of Ontario, and has been of late, and is, unexceptionally good. Mr. Ziegler is a practical workman, understanding every detail of his business and personally inspecting all work done in his establishment, thus guaranteeing to customers the utmost satisfaction.

      At the corner Enoch Ziegler's carriage factory, a good-sized and well-known shop which continued for many years.

      A brick building, one story and a half, lengthwise with King Street, occupied by Yost Stroh as shoemaker shop and dwelling. Later this was made into a two story building.

      Next an open space,

      A two story frame building, crowned with a bell tower, with a boiler house and engine in the rear. The bell is said to have been cracked on a New Year's night by too violent ringing. In any event its sound was impaired. The building as a factory was at one time operated by Cornell & Bowman. It changed tenants from time to time and occasionally was idle. In 1867 Henry Strieker used it as a woolen mill and William Simpson used it at one time. The building was unpainted. It was eventually destroyed by fire.

      Another factory building with gable toward King Street and a one story veranda in front.

      A two story brick dwelling, well back from the street, occupied by A. H. Mowat, general agent and Deputy Clerk, He was the father of Jim Mowat, known as Moses Oates and, as a weather prophet, active on the Toronto Globe for some years. Jim Mowat was a school mate of Jacob Stroh at the Central School. He published almanacs and was known throughout the province.
