Title
Montreal Engine Foundries and Their Contribution to Central Canadian Technical Development, 1820-1870
Abstract
Engine foundries developed in Montreal in the 1820s to produce marine steam engines for vessels on the St. Lawrence and later on the lower Great Lakes. Until the mid-1830s, most marine engines used in central Canada were produced in Montreal. After a downturn starting in the late 1830s, Montreal founders revived the industry in the 1850s. The author argues that these engine foundries were a major source of nineteenth century technological knowledge and their contributions helped mechanize and industrialize central Canada.
