Exterior of the Sutherland Press building, 606 Talbot Street, St. Thomas, on the southeast corner of Talbot and Moore Streets, ca. 1950. Constructed in 1913 for the Noble Manufacturing Co. Ltd., biscuit makers - the St. Thomas fire insurance plan of April 1906, revised May 1913, indicates the building was under construction in April, 1913. Taken over in 1916 by Nobility Chocolates Ltd. The building was vacant from 1923 to 1926. Briefly occupied in 1927 by the Ross Leaf Tobacco Co. Ltd. Taken over in late 1927 by the Sutherland Press Ltd., Frederick W. Sutherland, president. From 1928 to 1955, Sutherland Press shared these premises with the St. Thomas Box Co. Ltd. (and in 1929 only with the Lenox Manufacturing Co. Ltd., makers of overalls). From 1957 to 1983 Sutherland Press Ltd. is listed in city directories as the sole occupant of the building. From 1985 to 1993, the property is listed under the business name Loder-Sutherland, printing and advertising. From 1994 to 1999, the building is listed as vacant. In 1998 renovations began, undertaken by owner Westpoint Country Homes, to convert the building into downtown condominiums, and from 2000-2001 the building is listed as Sutherland Towers. Listed as vacant, 2002-2003, and from 2004-2010 under the business name Personal Property Management.
This view also includes Hal Kemp Motors Chrysler auto dealership, Moore Street water tower, City Cab stand sign, London & Port Stanley Railway tracks. Note also the parking meters on Talbot Street in front of the building: meters were installed in St. Thomas ca. 1947.
Not visible in this photograph, but still evident on close inspection of the building's facade, are stencilled First World War recruiting slogans, applied 1915-1916, encouraging enlistment in the 91st Overseas Battalion, C.E.F.

History / Biographical
The Charles E. Goad Company and, later, the Underwriters' Association, produced fire insurance plans for communities across Canada, including several within Elgin County. Charles E. Goad was born in England in 1848. He emigrated to Canada in 1869 and eventually began business as a cartographer in Montreal. Following his death in 1910, the company was reorganized and operated under the name Charles E. Goad Company. This firm was responsible for a major share of the insurance plans produced in Canada until 1917 at which time the Underwriters' Survey Limited became the primary producer of these plans. Underwriter's eventually bought out the assets of the Goad Company in 1931.
Custodial History
Transferred from the J.J. Talman Regional Collection, University of Western Ontario.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of fire insurance plans documenting contemporary building features for the purpose of assessing fire risk. Information includes the type of construction, number of storeys and proximity to other buildings. Each plan consists of a number of sections which, when assembled together, constitute a complete map of the town/village at that time, with street and building names clearly indicated. Buildings are also colour coded according to the type of fabrication, with colours corresponding to a key plan on the first section. Periodically, these plans were revised. Dates of revision are clearly marked. These plans provide a detailed overview of contemporary community development and are an invaluable source of information for dating buildings and for use in matters such as environmental site assessments. The Elgin County Archives possesses plans for the following communities: Belmont, April 1894, Goad, 1 copy-- 1 sheet (1 section). Fingal, Oct. 1896, Goad, 1 copy-- 1 sheet (1 section). Shedden, Oct. 1896, Goad, 1 copy-- 1 sheet (1 section). Vienna, Nov. 1896, Goad, 2 copies-- 1 sheet (1 section) per copy. West Lorne, May 1906, Goad, 2 copies-- 3 sheets (3 sections) per copy.
