Hats off to the Paper Mill

The former Domtar Fine Papers mill at Cornwall issued a great many souvenir ball caps and visors down the years.

This one was issued to commemorate the launch of a new line of paper called Fusion.

Some were to commemorate production and safety milestones and events, such as this 1995 Safety Week cap.

Some of the caps were issued for participation in company recreational activities, such as this Domtar Fish & Game Club cap,

and this cap for the 12th Annual Domtar Tenneco Paper Operations Bonspiel in 1985.

The mill had its share of golfers, too.

The annual Field Day at the company’s property in Apple Hill was always a good time.

These September 7, 1985 Field Day photos are from the Don Smith collection.

Our thanks to Nick Cox and the Ernest Filion, Sr family for a nice selection of this type of head gear.
