Date: 1922

Item consists of a black and white photographic print. Image is of a chart depicting the reconstruction schedule after the fire on April 29, 1922 destroyed the bin building, the conveyor houses, and 72″ roll house. Part of an album labelled Canada Crushed Stone Corp. Ltd., Dundas, Ont.

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.
