We used to make things in this country. #239: White Die Casting Company, Hamilton, Ontario

A cute little padsaw I picked up years ago.  The White Die Casting Company used to be located at 93 Ashley Street in Hamilton, Ontario.  Looking at Google Streetview, the street is now mixed residential and commercial.  The company was around in the 1950's, along with a host of small aluminum companies (see table below).  It has since disappeared, presumably with most of its Canadian competitors.
The Aluminum Products Industry 1952.  Dominion Bureau of Statistics--Department of Trade and Commerce Canada.
