General note

History: Andrew Kelly established the A. Kelly Milling Company in Brandon in 1881. In 1903, Kelly’s company amalgamated with Parrish & Lindsay and then with Lake Huron & Manitoba Milling Company in 1905. It was this second amalgamation which created the Western Canada Flour Company, with Kelly as president of the company. Purity Flour was a product of the Western Canada Flour Company, sometimes known as the Purity Flour Mills. This photograph shows a Purity Flour parade float.
