St. George's Cheese Factory 1893-1971

     Here's a little book I have in my collection of Island books.  It's called, "St. George's Cheese Factory:  A Brief History", written by George MacDonald, 1995.
     The cheese factory was built in 1893 and operated until 1907 when it was closed.  In 1915 Duncan MacDonald bought the building and moved it to his farm - the building saw its end when it was destroyed by vandal's fire on Halloween 1971.
     Below are a few pages from the book.
