This photo of the Owen Sound Board Of Trade, circa 1890, shows Robert Butchart and others involved in the Owen Sound Portland Cement Company.
Two others in this photograph were later involved with Robert Butchart in the Owen Sound Portland Cement Company.
George S. Kilbourn bought shares of the Owen Sound Portland Cement Company in 1895 and remained a shareholder until the company was sold to the Canada Cement Company in 1909. Kilbourn also served as the company’s Secretary and Treasurer from 1895 to 1909.
At the time this photograph was taken Robert Butchart was in the hardware business in Owen Sound.
