We used to make things in this country. #134: McFarlane Manufacturing Company Ltd., Toronto, Ontario

The McFarlane Manufacturing Co. Limited  was headquartered at 370 Main Street in Toronto, and manufactured  ladders, washboards, sleighs, summer furniture and household woodenware under the "Bull Dog" brand.  Obviously, they also made washboards marketed under the "Baby Globe" brand.  Hand washing clothes with these things must have been awful, so its ironic that people now buy old ones to display in their expensive homes.
