Description:
This is a photograph of Wolverton Flour Mills, located on the east bank of the Thames River. On the left you can see Victoria Bridge and Queen Street.

At the time this photograph was taken (likely around 1920 based on the presence of hydro poles and a sign on a store that matches another photo from that period), the mill would probably have been owned by the St. Marys Milling Company and called Wolverton Flour Mills, but it was known by several names throughout the years. The St. Marys Milling Company purchased the mill from G. Carter and Sons after they went bankrupt in 1919. After Wolverton Flour Mills, the mill became Great Star Flour Mills, which lasted until 1973.
Notes:
Condition: copy is in good condition, but it appears to be a picture of another original photograph. The original appears to have some creases and stains that make it difficult to make out the image.
