Item consists of a black and white photographic print. Part of an album labelled Canada Crushed Stone Corporation Ltd., Dundas, Ont. Caption: Fire April 29 Picture taken May 1 1922. Image shows the ruins of the 72 inch roll house and the screen house. The conveyor galleries no longer span the two.
On April 29, 1922, workers were welding spouts to the new shaking screens when a stray piece of molten metal set fire to a partition wall. Within a half hour the screen house, bins, conveyor galleries and the 72 inch roll house had been destroyed. It took only 50 working days to re-build these structures and return Canada Crushed Stone Corp. to full operation.
