29 Barrie Street Something For You and Nimbus

Many businesses have used the flat-roofed structure located at 29 Barrie Street. It was once the home of a farm machinery business run by Reuben Tindall. When he retired, he sold the business to Dick Crake. Dick, who sold machinery and 28 Chevrolet cars, was a bachelor who did not drive. Allen Ceeiry(?) was his chauffeur. Dick had one of the first radios in town and his shop was a popular hangout for farmers and teenage boys who wanted to listen to hockey games. Dick ran the business until he retired. Then John Morden (from Kirkland Lake) started a body, fender, and paint shop at this location which he ran until his death. A businessman from Bond Head ran a blacksmith shop here for a period of time after WWII. (1, 2)

Moore Bros. Marvel Acetylene Gas Generator

This is a portrait engraving of the Marvel Acetylene Gas Generator, patented and invented by the Moore Bros. This machine was installed in places without electrical hook-ups so electricity could be used, and was in the Model School, Samuel Lukes' house, Dr. Stevenson's hosue, and the Presbyterian Manse.

Old machines attract crowds

"The Georgian Bay Steam Show featured more than steam tractors like the one driven by the young man in photo below. A miniature steam locomotive (above) was a big hit with children who were among more than 15,000 people at the three-day event. The working model built by Wes White is highly detailed and it runs on coal. Above at right, an eight-cylinder 1947 Buick was one of the vintage automobiles on display. On display were cars ranging from the early 1900s to 1965."
