Hi Just wondering if Henry Agnew owned a foundry of some kind:
A destructive fire took place on Thurs day, November 6, 1862, in Mr. Henry Agnew s foundry on the west eide of Sumach street, eouth of Queen. The fire commenced in the machine shop, a frame building, and spread with such rapidity that in ten minutes the whole building w.as a mass of flames. The pattern mak ers had to run out to save themselves, leaving all their tools behind them. Meantime the fire engines arrived, and one of the steamers 1 was stationed at the edge of the Don, and, by pouring on a powerful stream of water the fire was confined to the building in which it originated. A great deal of valuable machinery w r ae lost jin this fire, and the building was completely destroyed. The lose was between $8,000 and $10,000, and the place was uninsured. The fire was purely accidental.
