Item Type:
Black and white reprint of a photograph of the Doon Twines building, in Doon (now Kitchener), Ontario.
The Doon Twine mill was established in 1853 by brothers, Joseph, William and Moses Perine, along with a flax mill in the community known as Upper Doon, Ontario. The community was also known as Tow Town. The twine mill produced twine, rope, and picture and curtain cordage.

The company was bought in 1906 by Berlin industrialist, Hartman Krug. He moved the operations of Doon Twine to Kitchener in 1916, locating it in the former Canadian Regal Motors Limited car plant, at the corner of Ottawa and Charles Streets in Kitchener.

In 1979, Doon Twines and Canada Cordage were amalgamated and continued operations under the name Canada Cordage Inc.
