Elmira main street, 1910

  • CA MAO Digital 122
  • Item
  • 1910

The two large buildings on the left are the newly built Zilliax Hotel and stables, on the north west corner of Church and Arthur Streets, Elmira. In the Elmira Signet, October 10, 1898, J. Letter and Son of Waterloo was listed as the contractor re building the stable of the Zilliax block after a fire had leveled it. (The fire levelled several buildings along the street included the wooden Zilliax hotel.)

Across Arthur Street, is the two-storey Dreisinger building (formerly the Wachsmuth Block). It had an addition built on the back in 1912, so this dates the photo between 1898 and 1912.

In the Elmira Signet, January 29, 1920, information about the sale of the stables is given: "Further, the sale of the Ziliax sheds to Mr. W. C. Quickfall as a garage will deprive our farmers of the principal shed remaining."

It's possible that the horses are being taken to the corner for a sale which was held regularly.

Stirling Avenue Mennonite Church glass slide collection

  • CA MAO XIII-2.15.2/14
  • File
  • 1824

This file contains a sampling of the glass slides collected and used at Stirling Avenue Mennonite Church in the 1940s. Some of the slides were created from photographs of church activities or supplied to the church by mission organizations. Others, mostly texts of hymns, were ordered from the United Church Publishing House in Toronto and used in informal worship services. All slides in this file bear the United Church Publishing House label (not visible in scans), which would indicate that this publishing house did the work of transforming all of these photographs into slides.

Several mission and service activities supported by the congregation are highlighted. They include: 1) The Stirling Crusaders program whereby children and youth grew produce, raised livestock, collected recycling and did odd jobs to raise funds for war relief and missions projects; 2) the activities of missionaries Lillian and Cyril Forth of the Sudan Interior Mission (a non-Mennonite mission in Nigeria supported by the congregation); 3) the House of Friendship in Kitchener. These slides were used by the congregation in meetings and informal services to highlight these mission and relief activities.
