Fine Foods Of Canada

A look at the Fine Foods Plant, at Tecumseh & Lacasse in Tecumseh. I’ve been meaning to post about this place for a long time, and the postcard above has finally pushed this post into becoming a reality.

A neat view of the old sign that was once out front. I’ll admit to being woefully ignorant about the processes used here, but I anyone know what the octagonal section is used for?

A view along Lacasse Boulevard today.

This is the section seen the crop above. The only difference looks to be the smokestacks….

The factory was opened in 1931, and was designed by Albert Lothian. If you look at the brickwork here, you can see similarity to some of his other buildings.

A pair of ad’s from the Border Cities Star, June 27, 1931 the one above offering a visit to the kitchens, and the one below for Albert Lothian.
