Walter and John Armour and A Findlay Stove








Walter in 1977 and Grandson John in 2004 at homestead of Walter’s Father, Robert Armour (Turloughstown/Kells, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland)– All Photos property John Armour


John Armour has sent me many important local pictures, and last week he sent me a link to  photos from a vintage hardware store in Gananoque that he visited.

There, prominently displayed, were two Findlay Oval stoves, in mint condition. His Grandfather, Walter Armour, was a Master Moulder for 60 years at Findlay’s, so he was looking at these beautiful stoves in the store knowing his Grandfather had a hand in building them.

Thank you John for these photos, and remember to drop into the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museumto see the silent Findlay Foundry Film.
