Do you know what was going on in Aylmer in 1909 and 1932? If you are curious you should read this. You can learn so much! Even about a boiler.
Did you know a boiler exploded in 1909? It was on a Tuesday evening. The fire destroyed the plant,light and shoe store. The microfilm shows us that it was called a disastrous conflagration. The newspaper date is October 14th page six. It's very different today because we don't use candles anymore and back then they had to use burning sticks of wax. Today businesses don't use candles anymore now that there's furnaces around. Disastrous conflagration, The Aylmer Express, October 14th, 1909, Page six, Microfilm.
