Description

"Flour Mill: Within the last few years, with the growth of the agricultural industry, a large number of flour mills have been established in Western Canada. They have a total output of over 128,000 barrels a day, and the establishments range in size from those of a capacity of only a few barrels to giant plants with capacities of a thousand and more barrels a day."
