This building was located on Holland St. E. The store pictured was owned by W. Curry who opened the business in 1943. Before Bradford Seed House opened, this building was a shoe store rented by Joe Coridan from Howard Bowser (Bowsher), an Englishman, who owned the building at that time. Today the building has been demolished and this site is a parking lot near the CIBC bank.
