This was building #17 (perhaps the last one built) of the former large Crane Canada complex.  (Crane is still active with a warehouse to the south west of this property.)
For many years dating back to the turn of the last century, Crane had a large vertically integrated foundry and factories producing all kinds of valves.  This building, built in the early 1950's seems to have been used as a light manufacturing and assembly facility for brass valves.  On the second floor, we have preserved the traditional and original wood butcher-block type floor covering that was in vogue in factories of the first half of the twentieth century. However, this structure reflects also the economic boom times following WW II.  With steel reinforced solid poured concrete structure and large, mushroom-head columns on all floors, it  was overbuilt for its intended function.
