Research Facts
Bought by donor from a workman who found this bottle and several others in a waste site while excavating for building the Sky Dome in the late 1980s.
Hospital for Sick Children Toronto supplied pasteurized cow milk to mothers at its clinic / entrance at Elizabeth and College Streets, ca. 1910-1915. "THE MILK SUPPLY. The Pasteurization Plant has now been in complete working order for the past two years, all milk used being scientifically pasteurized in our Laboratory. During the year 72 gallons of milk were daily pasteurized for in-patients and 602 bottles of baby food prepared for outside babies—a daily average of 60 babies. The milk used in the Hospital for the patients and the staff is all pasteurized." From 1911 Annual Report
See Heritage Toronto article regarding bottles produced by the Hospital for Sick Chldren. John Ross Robertson, benefactor of the Hospital, announced he would build a pasteurization plant for the Hospital in 1908. In 1909 a temporary location was set up on Elizabeth Street, The purpose-built facility at 54 LaPlante Ave. opened in January 1914. Milk was dispensed to the public and bottles were returned (the Hospital had its own bottles, and to encourage their return, the bottoms were rounded, making it impossible to stand them up). In April 1914, Toronto passed a law requiring all milk to be pasteurized. The Hospital for Sick Children stopped most pasteurization operations by 1928.
