Remember when:

*John Fratalochi, a section man with the CPR, was one of the first persons in Lindsay to equip his motorcycle with a side-car. He was always willing to oblige if anyone wanted to go for a ride with him.

*Anyone passing the old Tannery in Omemee had to hold on to their nose to help stifle the horrible odor emanating from the factory.

*Charlie Wright's slogan for his Smoke Shop located on Kent St. just west of William Street was "The Wright Smoke Shop".

*The Victoria Trust and Savings Company was located at the South-West corner of Kent & William streets.

*Scofield Battersby was principal of Central Public School.

*Students' suits were available at "Brummell's for as low as $12.00.

*Fee Motors, located at the corner of Kent & Cambridge Streets, offered "All Night Service".

*Mr. & Mrs. Bert Ellis opened the "Lindsay Cleaners and Dyers Ltd." in a shop on the south side of Kent street just west of Lindsay street.

*The Central Fruit Store, owned and operated by Joe Lamantia, was situated at 72 Kent St.

*A series of cars with their lights on indicated a funeral procession.

*Art Peel and Bob Chapman were co-owners of the Kawartha Lumber Co situated on Kent Street just west of Victoria Avenue.

*Garnet Sedgwick drove the bus for Algar Coach Lines from Haliburton to Lindsay return, back in the late 40's. A more pleasant lad you'd never meet.
