Digging through assorted drawers in my shop, I found other S&S electrical products:
In 1919 William Smith and "Benny" Stone founded Smith and Stone in Georgetown, Ontario. The company was created to make electrical wiring devices to supply the huge demand as access to electrical energy spread across the country. The original factory was originally constructed from an existing building called "The Glass Gardens":

The company closed its doors in 1992 and the factory was subsequently demolished. Google Streetview shows its location as a fenced-in lot grown over with trees and brush.
Thanks to the Esquesing Historical Society for the information above.

Great products they were.My father , a lifer at Double Diamond S , gave me a 1936 catalogue No. 6. and a few other pieces.
If you'd like to scan any pages from the catalogue and send them to us, we'd be happy to post them!
Were you able to get a hold of any smith and stone catalogs. I have been looking for pdf copies for a while and have not been able to find anything
I found some assorted pictures here; http://www.thegeorgetownvault.com/smith-and-stone.html
Thanks, I’ve seen these pictures as well. I just wish I could find a full catalog somewhere. I have gotten into collecting old switches, receptacles, and other electrical stuff as I have been doing work on my older house and really enjoy reading older catalogs.
