Scope and Content
Photographs of a load of corn spilled into the side of the Imperialle Fuels building. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, November 7, 1952, page one: “Load of Corn Crashes Into Office Building.” 2_1994: “Joseph McManus of Imperialle Fuels, Limited, went into the corn business, early Thursday evening. He went into the corn business in a hurry, in fact the corn business started at the Imperialle Fuels office at the south end of Princess avenue with such a rush that it virtually submerged the office. “It all happened when Morley McCready, young truck driver from Newbury, Ont., started backing a huge truck belonging to George E. Stratton of Avon in the crowded yard of McClean Grain Limited. The truck, said to carry nearly nine tons of corn in the ear, moved over the platform of the Imperialle Fuels weigh scales unevenly. Suddenly there was a splintering and a crash and down went the right front end of the big truck, into the scales pit, and over went the huge load of corn. The corn hit the office building with such force that the north wall was sprung. The scales window was forced in, sash and all; the scales, were toppled over and bushels of yellow corn spewed in through the window opening, across the floor of the office, upsetting chairs. “What time did this occur? At 6.40 o’clock, Thursday evening. There was a silent witness to testify at the time. An alarm clock the stood on top of the scale in the office was knocked off with such violence that its works were damaged. The clock stopped functioning at 6.40 p.m.”

Photographs of Kenneth Blaxall, Robert Heath, Howard Barnier and Ray G. Shaw standing in front of a shipment of wheat from the farm of Wilbur Ling to McClean Grain Ltd. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, July 21, 1953, page seven: “First Wheat Weighs Heavy.” 1_1288: “The first wheat of the 1953 crop grown in Elgin and shipped to St. Thomas was received by McClean Grain Ltd. this morning from the farm of Wilbur Ling on No. 4 Highway just north of Talbotville. Mr. Ling combined a small stand of about 10 acres late Monday afternoon and the first 200 bushels delivered to McClean Grain averaged 62 pounds to the bushel, or two pounds above standard and from three to four pounds a bushel heavier than wheat usually weighs. Officials of McClean Grain say it looks as though the Elgin wheat yield this year will be high everywhere, perhaps even better than farther west in Kent County where yields of 50 bushels to the acre were reported last week. In the above photograph are Kenneth Blaxall, left, of Talbotville, who trucked the grain to town; Robert Heath, vice-president of McClean Grain; Howard Barnier, St. Thomas, plant superintendent for McClean Grain, weighing a sample; and Ray G. Shaw, resident manager for the company, assisting.”

Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published February 21, 1967 with caption: "Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) - In 1864, a group of Disciples, under the leadership of Elder Edmud Sheppard, met for worship near the present site of the Centennial Ave. School. On September 14, 1879, the growing congregation moved into a new building on Railway Street (now Princess Ave.) By 1904, the membership had increased to 355 and the inadequate building had to be replaced again. On April 28, 1907, the present building was dedicated in a spirit of enthusiasm. That day donations were received for over two-thirds of the $15,461.40 cost. A peak membership of 538 was reached by 1916. Over tha years, Disciples have varied in the names they used. for some time this congregation has been known as the Church of Christ (Disciples). However, because our International Convention recently adopted a new name, the church voted at its 1967 Annual Meeting to identify with the convention and be Known hereafter as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)."
