Description
A black and white panoramic framed photograph of Dominion Rubber Machinery Shop employees taken on 1 June 1927. The employees are sitting and standing along the factory wall. An open door and two vehicles can be seen to the right.
Notes
The Rubber Machinery Shops were located adjacent to the Dominion Tire Plant on Strange Street, in Kitchener. The shops manufactured machinery for the rubber industry, such as mills, refiners, hydraulic presses, tire molds, mill drives and numerous types of industrial equipment and machinery.

Ernest Denton was a photographer in Berlin/Kitchener from approximately 1912 to 1955. He operated photography studios at various locations in the city.

The photograph is in very good condition, but has yellowed slightly at the far right. It is mounted behind glass in a decorative walnut-brown wooden frame. The frame is in fair condition, as it is worn at the edges, with a sharp gauge at the middle of the right side.
