FREE 1918 Stamped and Enamelled Ware Catalogue - Hespeler, Ontario

  If you moved to Hespeler in the last twenty five years or so you remember the Stamped and Enamelled Ware Company Ltd on Guelph Avenue as the American Standard plant . It used to make bathtubs at the plant.  If you moved here recently, 80% of the Stamped Enamelled Plant and historic Hespeler Grist Mill has been wiped out. One building was saved and turned into condos and one new apartment building was built. The Stamped and Enamelled Ware Company has a very rich history. The catalogue has lots of interesting pots, pans, etc. that were made there. This publication is in the public domain. I tried to improve the quality of it. I hope everyone will enjoy seeing what one factory in Hespeler used to make. Click HERE for the 1918 catalogue. Feel free to share this post with friends.

Canoeing on the Mill Pond, Speed River, Hespeler, Ontario, March 25, 2020

A great healthy activity for the whole family. We did not have much of a winter so the pond is already shallow. Stay along the outside of the pond and enjoy the beauty. Parking at lot at the end of Spring Street. The dock may or may not be in. Does not matter you can enter your canoe in at Little Riverside Park, which starts at the end of Spring Street. Simply beautiful. Dylan and Paul Langan
