  1. Can you tell me why you have nothing listed for T.D. Millar Ingersoll, Oatario, Canada. Millar Produced, Millar’s Royal Paragon Canadian Cheese in Ingersoll, Canada. His company won medals at the Colonial and Amsterdam exhibition in 1884 & 1866. He registered his trade mark T.D.M. March 14, 1889.

    Excellent collection

    Several geographic orientation descriptions made reference to places I do not know, eg the armoury…
    does the armoury still exist? & where is it?,
    if not, street names and compass directions remain the same for the most past, so are the most useful means to orient to the location today about places long gone
    there needs to be the addition of a street map , positioned at the beginning so that one knows it exists for reference, , and where to locate it so as to move back and refer to it. It would be most useful for those unfamiliar with, or who have forgotten Ingersoll’s geography

    I would welcome going on a historical walk or drive, possibly more than one, in Ingersoll, preferably a guided tour, and/or being able to refer to reproduction images of places in this website, to try to imagine where they once were located & what they looked like,
    possibly a fundraiser idea for some like-minded organization(s) in the area: I would be prepared to pay for someone’s time & expertise
    maybe during
    -Heritage week?
    -school breaks?
    -wine& cheese time?
    -prime tourist season=summer months?

    It is hard to envision the depth & breadth of industry that once flourished in Ingersoll

    Thank you for providing such a detailed view

  3. love the web site.. things have certainly changed would love to see pictures from people through the years, so much has come and gone from Ingersoll since I was born in 1964. Should up date to add more info

  4. In the photo of the employees of Morrow Screw Company of April 1952:
    #3 is Ralph Richardson. I knew him as a member of Trinity United Church, on King Street West.
    #73 is not Leo Harlow. It is Les Harlow, who became Ingersoll’s fire chief a few years later. He lived directly across from Trinity United Church, and his son Bill still lives there.
