Description: At this time Good Rich Oil Refinery in Port Credit was described in the Toronto Evening Telegram as "the most beautiful refinery in the world". It was producing 25,000,000 gallons of petroleum products each year. It was a $1,000,000 plant, the largest independent oil refinery in Canada and operating at capacity, yet it was a beauty spot, flanked with flower gardens and fifteen acres of beautiful woodlands, with a country mansion as its administration building.
