Shell Manufacturing Proposed in Guelph (19 June 1915)

While the Ayr Board of Trade considered instituting local munitions manufacturing, several proposals were made in Guelph. The Berlin Daily Telegraph reported that a number of men who had secured large shell orders from the Canadian government had sought to produce munitions at locations in Guelph. Although nothing had yet come of such efforts, negotiations were reportedly ongoing to convert one of Guelph’s largest machine shop into a shell factory.
