History of The Cornwall Cheese and Butter Board

About This Project

The Cornwall Cheese and Butter Board was in operation from 1898 until 1951. This is a "webified" version of a history which the Board self-published at Cornwall, Ontario in 1919. From The Standard, Cornwall, ON, August 15, 1918:

In pictorial completeness, both in individual photographs and engravings of farm dwellings and farm buildings, the Official History of the Cornwall Cheese & Butter Board now being compiled, promises to be one of real merit. Life-like reproductions of several hundred patrons of cheese factories and others from all parts of Stormont and Glengarry will appear within its pages together with intimate and detailed biographical sketches of their life and farm activities. Many unique features will lend an added attractiveness to this volume. The publisher, H. M. Stiles, and treasurer, A. C. Fetterly, announce that when completed and ready for the press this edition will be one of the most elaborate from a Dairying and Agricultural standpoint yet published in Canada. Photographer Robert Douglas is doing the indoor photographic work and Thomas Lafleur the outdoor.

A companion project is the "Souvenir Of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry commemorating Old Boys' Reunion at Cornwall, Ontario, August 11 - 15, 1906".

  • Original web design and production: Hugh Campbell
  • Secondary web design revised January 2011 by Wendy Anctil to adhere to XHTML standards.
  • All web images enhanced by Wendy Anctil with Adobe Print Shop Deluxe version 8.
  • Why XHTML?
    XML is a markup language where everything must be marked up correctly, which results in "well-formed" documents.
    XML is designed to describe data, and HTML is designed to display data.
    Today's market consists of different browser technologies, some browsers run on computers, and some browsers run on mobile phones or other small devices. The last-mentioned do not have the resources or power to interpret a "bad" markup language.
    Therefore - by combining the strengths of HTML and XML, W3C recommended a markup language that is useful now and in the future - XHTML.
