Notes
The Doon Twine mill was established in 1853 by brothers, Joseph, William and Moses Perine, along with a flax mill in the community known as Upper Doon, Ontario. The community was also known as Tow Town. The twine mill produced twine, rope, and picture and curtain cordage. The building in this photograph is a two storey structure, built circa 1880 by Joseph and Moses Perine. Known as the "The Terrace ", it was built to accommodate the workers that were brought from England, Ireland and Scotland to work in the flax and twine mills. The building features a side gable, nine bays, terracotta red brick, and three chimneys. The company was bought in 1906 by Berlin industrialist, Hartman Krug. He moved the operations of Doon Twine to Kitchener in 1916, locating it in the former Canadian Regal Motors Limited car plant, at the corner of Ottawa and Charles Streets in Kitchener. In 1979, Doon Twines and Canada Cordage were amalgamated and continued operations under the name Canada Cordage Inc. This photo is in excellent condition.

This house, located in the Blair Village Heritage Conservation District, was once occupied by the township reeve, James Johannes. It was built in 1817 by the brothers, L. and E. Bechtel, and is also known as the Jacob Bechtel House. The smaller stone cottage shown on the right side of the image was built in 1805 and was used by the Bechtel brothers prior to the construction of the larger home. According to a Hamilton Spectator article dated 3 November 1962, the stone cottage was converted into a ranch style home in the 1950s. This image is a reproduction and is in excellent condition. This image is part of the Jim Johannes Collection.
