Lindcraft one of the Town’s Newest Industries – already doing business

The latest industry in Lindsay worthy of publicity, is that of Lindcraft, located at 82 Wellington St., the owners being Messrs. Milford Sleep and Lawson Blakely.

According to the business letterhead used by the new firm these young men have established a place of business for the manufacture of Toys, Novelties and Wood Special¬ties.

Both are expert craftsmen learning the business in their early youth as lads attending school, when they had their own work benches in the cellars of their respective homes and carried on communication by means of a home made transmitting radio set.

With the coming of World War No. 2 Milford Sleep for a time was employed with Victory Aircraft in Toronto and later taken on as an expert at the Lindsay Arsenal, while Lawson Blakely became one of the foremost in the heroic group of transatlantic radio operators of the Ferry Command. He had two years previous experience as a radio operator on Merchant Marine, and in seven years he has visited practically every country in Europe.

Many friends will wish these two young men every success in their new undertaking.
