Notes

Item is a copy of workers involved in the construction of the Birge-Carnegie Library, as included in the superintendent's progress report for December 1909 and January 1910, which reads "James Carter as an expert stonemason has few equals. The setting up of the 'hammered rubble' work of Victoria College Library, consisting of two hundred car-loads of grey Credit Valley, is a monument to his skill. Ed Sutherland, foreman of the cut stone workers, displayed his genius in handling twenty-eight car-loads of 'Bedford Block' all cut on the premises under his supervision, making one of the finest examples of Perpendicular Gothic in the Dominion.".
