I have a very old Maxwell reel mower , in very good condition. is there anyway I can find out what year it is, or any parts outlets ? It is a Maxwell glider deluxe, the only thing wore on it is the wooden dowling roller at the back of the mower. looking forward to any ideas.

Answer: Anyone with a Maxwell artifact, and seeking information about it, is invited to submit a digital photograph so that Museum staff can compare the picture to artifacts or catalogues in the collection. The email address is: museum@town.stmarys.on.ca

Maxwell plant, 1890

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).
