CANADIAN CO-OPERATIVE WOOL GROWERS, CARLETON PLACE, ONTARIO
Last week I visited the Canadian Co-operative WoolGrowers company in Carlton Place. Actually I wandered into their huge warehouse and processing plant by accident. It is an amazing place located in the old Canadian Pacific Railway workshop and roundhouse, which was used by the railway from 1890 till 1939. The WoolGrowers Co-operative moved into the building in 1940. They process over three million pounds of wool every year. It's an amazing operation and I could have spent a few days simply exploring and photographing the place.
