Scope and Content
Photographs of Herbert "Bert" May, N.Y.C. passenger conductor, shaking hands with William B. Salter, Division Superintendent, on the steps of the Empire State Express at St. Thomas. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal: "A Youthful-Looking Veteran: Smiling and still youthful-looking Herbert G. (Bert) May, N.Y.C. passenger conductor, shakes hands with Division Superintendent William B. Salter when, as he stood on the steps of the Empire State Express Saturday at the St. Thomas depot, he was presented with a 50-year gold engraved pass from Gustav Metzman, president of the New York Central. Mr. May, who started his railway service as a brakeman on the M.C.R. here just fifty years ago, has been a passenger conductor eleven years. He now resides in Windsor, being in charge of fast through trains. But, even though he's mighty proud of his fifty-year service and of possession of the golden pass, "Bert" is not retiring - he feels too young for that. Mr. May, who is in charge of fast passenger flyers between Detroit and Buffalo, now resides in Windsor where he moved ten years ago, but he spent 40 years of his career in St. Thomas. His uniform bears nine gold stripes, each representing five years' service and if Mr. May, or Bert, as he is better known, has his way he'll add another stripe or two before retiring. His tenth stripe is to be added at once. His trains now include the Detroiter and the North Shore Limited. Mr. Satler presented Mr. May with the coveted pass good on all trains on any part of the vast system, the presentation being made on behalf of Mr. Metzman, and J. L. McKee, vice-president. The recipient said he will cherish the pass with all his heart and made use of it as extensively as possible whenever time permits."

Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal: "Has Perfect 45-Year Safety Record on N.Y.C." 1_2549: "Flanked on the left by Charles McLean, statoinmaster here, and on the right by Ralph F. De Forrest, assistant general manager, Detroit, Harry C. Newkirk, centre, veteran passenger conductor on the Canada Division of the New York Central System (Michigan Central Railroad), is seen standing by train No. 50, the Empire State Express, as it arrived at the local depot Monday morning. Mr. Newkirk, whose run at the present time is No. 48, the Detroiter, between Detroit and Duffalo, has been with the N.Y.C. for 45 years, during which time he has never had a blemish on his safety record, a most remarkable and unusual achievement. Because of this fact, he was guest speaker at the June safety-first conference of officials and supervisors held in the office of William B. Salter, divisional superintendent, on Monday afternoon, at which time he told of his own record. He was highly complimented by Mr. De Forrest and other officials. Mr. De Forrest praised Mr. Salter and officials for the fine record on the Canada Division. Ray McGowin, N.Y.C. safety agent, New York City, who attended the meeting, also added his praise to Mr. Newkirk and local officials. (See story on page two.)"

The famous New York Central engine picked up the Empire State Express at Syracuse and engineer Charles H. Hogan was told to try for the speed record when he hit the 36 mile straighaway after leaving Batavia on the way to Buffalo. The result was world wide news and the withdrawal of the locomotive from service for exhibition at World's Fairs and expositions in 1901. Locomotive 999 and the Empire State Express were used on a U.S. postage stamp commemorating the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo." Scanned from the acetate negative, which is badly affected by vinegar syndrome.

Description
Photograph of the Carnation Milk factory and the train tracks to the east. Houses in the foreground. Taken from the water tower, taken ca. 1950. In 1892 David Marshall partnered with George Allworth to build a condensed milk and cream evaporating plant – the first of its kind. Orders came in from all over the world and they began operating 24 hours a day. Marshall later bought the Condensed Milk Company from Allworth and included it under the Aylmer Canners. Unfortunately, no known photo exists of the first building the company operated out of. In 1907 a $60,000 brick building was built for the Aylmer Condensed Milk Company on the east side of John Street North. This building was used until the company’s closing. On November 27, 1916 the Aylmer Condensed Milk Company was purchased by the Carnation Company. This marked the first Carnation plant in Canada. At this point the factory employed about 75 people. Employment at the factory reached its peak during the Second World War and employed roughly 150 people. As of the 1980’s the Aylmer plant of Carnation employed 48 people in the condensed milk division and 25 in the can division. Production at the Aylmer Carnation Company plant later stopped and the plant was closed on May 1st, 1987. The building sat empty and with no other interest in it, was later torn down in 1993.

History / Biographical
The Grand Trunk Railway was chartered on November 10, 1852 as the Grand Trunk Railway Company of Canada and quickly expanded into Canada West and into the United States, where it ran freight and passenger trains in the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario, and in the American states of Connecticut, Maine, Michigan, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Its main corporate headquarters were located in London, England and North American headquarters were located in Montreal, Quebec. During its lifetime, the Grand Trunk Railway operated three subsidiary companies including Central Vermont Railway, Grand Trunk Pacific Railway and Grand Trunk Western Railroad.
On January 20, 1923, Grand Trunk was formally merged with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, the Canadian Northern Railway and the National Transcontinental lines to form the new Canadian National Railways, a Crown corporation.
