    As a kid, I remember going into the Conner’s Hardware Store in this building with my dad. What stands out in my memory most, is the many barrels of bulk nails and screws lined up along the walls.. As I recall, the store was quite narrow and there were entrance doors from both Main St.at the front and Penniman Ave.at the back of the store.

    Mr. Will Conner most definitely gets an ‘Atta Boy’ for being in on the formation of Ford Motor of Canada(1904)!
