The Dundas Mill Cornwall, circa 1900.

The Mill was constructed in 1870 for the Cornwall Manufacturing Co.  It was renamed the Dundas Mill in 1903.  In 1903 it became part of the newly formed Canadian Cotton Mills Ltd.

The Dundas Mill around 1906.  Sometime between 1900 and 1906 the tower was enclosed.  It is believed that the small building to the left in front of the Mill is the Flack and Van Arsdale Pottery.

This photograph probably dates from the 1920s, the tower has been repaired and the water tower in the background built.  The Canada Mill is on the right.

The Mill in 2002.  After it closed it became home to Bingley Steel.

With the Mill closed and the water tower in a decrepit state it was taken down in 1993.

These are a few of the photographs in the collection at the archives in the Cornwall Community Museum regarding Canadian Cottons.
