|Name/Title:||Canada Crushed Stone Co. fonds. Re-building the screen house (21)|
Item consists of a black and white photographic print. Part of an album labelled Canada Crushed Stone Corp. Ltd., Dundas, Ont. Caption: 6th weeks’ progress June 12, 1922. Image shows the progress made re-building the screen house and the frame of the conveyor galleries, taken from below.
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.
