How big it was, the Longworth milling plant at 200 Vine Ave

 

Until 1972 the Longworth Milling Company, Ltd plant sat near the intersection of Vine Ave. And McMurray Ave. At this time the plant was demolished and the land was was incorporated into the Vine Ave. park. The community had energized itself for a long difficult effort to have the city purchase the land for its inclusion in the smaller existing Vine Ave. Park.

The plant was huge with silos that towered about the residential houses, and spilled huge amount of gran onto Vine Ave. daily.
