Description
Copy of a group photo of employees of David Maxwell Company, St. Marys. The photograph is taken on the loading dock of the factory, located on James Street South. The dock was for shipping and receiving goods sent by train (the tracks are visible in the photograph.)

Maxwell's came to St. Marys in 1888 and produced agricultural and household items for many years - until the early 1960s.

The St. Marys Museum has many examples of products that were once made at Maxwell's such as lawn mowers, washing machines and even the shells of grenades (produced at the plant during World War II).
