Several complaints have recently been made by residents in Eveline Crescent and Eveline Road of the nuisance from smoke and fumes from Messrs. Horsman’s Iron Foundry. I have kept observation on the works, and I find the fumes from the cupolas in which metals are heated are very strong. I havce not seen much smoke, but, according to my reading of the new Smoke Act, these works are exempt from the operation of the Act.
