Why Peterborough I wonder?

Hi there

I've heard the story that ZL&T was in Peterborough many times, yet I could find no record of it in local archives.

I wonder how the story got started?

There were several companies making wartime fabric materials here: JJ Turner, Colonial Weaving and the Bonnerworth Mill to name a few. I've seen tent bags stamped with Turner's name and Bonnerworth made khaki wool serge material.

Could ZL&T have been a controlling interest in firms in places other than Guelph?
