Remember when:

*Fulton, Stinson, Anderson and McLaughlin were Lindsay's most prominent law firm?

*Other high profile attorneys were: Col. R. I. Moore, Lorne Jordan, Allan T. Lacey, Frost, Frost and Richardson and I. E. Weldon.

*Moore went on to become a Magistrate, Jordan a Crown Attorney and Les. Frost, Premier of Ontario.

*Restaurants were about the only businesses open on Sundays.

*Rhys Williams was employed at A. J. Harrigan's Pharmacy. Rhys went from Harrigan's to Houzer's Mens' Wear and eventually bought out Harold Wood's haberdashery that was previously A. J. McBride's.

*A gentleman by the name of Edgar McHugh was a favorite on radio with his programme "Edgar McHugh, Your Gospel Singer".

*The Academy Theater often showed movies starring Jane Withers, a rival of Shirley Temple?

*Folks having car problems would call a "wrecker". Now it's call for a "tow truck"

*We learned that the cruise liner, Queen Elizabeth II, moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel it burns.

*Kids would let out a loud scream when the lights in the theater would dim. The dimming of the lights signaled the start of the Saturday afternoon movie was about to take place.
