Keys to History

This is King's Mill, belonging to the Amalgamated Asbestos Corporation, in 1909. The Quebec asbestos industry went through a significant period of concentration during this time. Amalgamated Asbestos emerged from the merger of many more modest mining companies; powerful Montreal financiers took part in its management.
