Canadian Bridge Company – 1916

Happy Friday once again! Today’s photos are submitted by regular reader Ken Taylor.

The photos looks to be from WWI, and it looks like the Canadian Bridge Company contributed to the war effort. Looks like this room was given over to manufacturing shells.

This one has a caption on the front. It reads: “Shell Shop C.B.Co Pl #2 1916”.

Here’s another shot looking in the other direction. Maybe there’s a reader familiar with the site who can figure which way we’re looking here…

I love the shack here. The guys in the picture appear well dressed, probably a manager or foreman.

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday. Big thanks to Ken for sharing these photos!
