J. WALSH, plumber, Hamilton, Ont.,

was born on the 1st of February, 1856, in that city. He was educated at the Hamilton public schools, and afterwards went as an apprentice to H. Harding, plmber. In 18;1 he entered the establishment of Young Brothers, Hamilton, until 18'75, when he became foreman to Mr. D. McFee. After this he filled important positions in the sane line of business in New York and Chicago, where he received a thorough knowledge of plumbing, steam heating, hot water heating, and ventilation, until in 1885 he re-turned to Hamilton, where he has since carried on a steadily increasing business as plumber in all its branches. He takes extensive contracts for all classes of work, and has given the utmost satisfaction to all who have favored him with their patronage. The very marked success of Mr. Walsh is a clear illustration of the old proverb, that " there is always room at the top." In politics he is an active Conservative and in religion a Methodist. He also belongs to the Free Masons. He was married in 1884 to Ida, second daughter of Thomas Egan, of Hamilton.
