Scarce carte de visite photograph showing gang of people on top of a 7,300 pound block of cheese. The Mammoth Cheese of Oxford County,Ontario Canada stood as a symbol of Ingersoll, Ontario’s world famous dairy and cheese industry. This 7,300 pound block of cheese was created in 1866 at the James Harris Cheese Factory, located where the Elm Hurst Inn stands today on Highway 19. The milk of 2,400 cows from more than 250 area farms was needed to produce 35 tons of milk to make the mammoth cheese. On August 23, 1866, after being aged and cured for three months, the 7,300 pound block of cheese was paraded through the streets of Ingersoll to the train station. The enormous cheese travelled to the State Fair in Saratoga, New York before being shipped to and showcased throughout England and Europe.
