Event description

Description

Learn how Waterloo's Board of Trade convinced city council to adopt a "progressive factory policy" of loans and tax exemptions for new industries in the 1890s. (Citizens voted on each and every subsidy, by the way.) See the still-standing results of this policy in Uptown Waterloo, as well as the Victorian splendour of the homes and offices of the industrialists and businesspeople of the day.
