A Business Quiz from around the Park

756
754


739

The first three are businesses for the quiz.

756 I want the blogsters to guess what business was in the building on the right about 1960.

754 What was the name of the business partially hidden by the Church sign?

739 King Edward Ave. near the corner of Devonshire Road. Anyone know?

MARSTON
756--------MARTINS LIGHT LUNCH PUKECHUTE & PINBALL
754---------GAREAU OIL, I BOUGHT THE PLACE IN 1974 FROM THEM AND SOLD IN 1975 TO THE HAIR SALON.
739----------SUDS DEPOT IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY O'KEEFE, THERE WAS A SECOND STORY YEARS AGO, THE HUZALAKS LIVED IN IT.

Hi Marty
The first two buildings in question are: 756 was Martins Restaurant , 757 was Gareau Fuel Oil and a wild guess for 758. Was this a Dow Brewery depot?
George V

756 It was known as Martin's Light Lunch on Devonshire Road.

754 It was Mr. Gareau's Oil Business on Churchill at Murray. This was the easy one.

739 This was Canadian Breweries and Beer Depot on King Edward Ave. near the corner of Devonshire Road.

Thanks John R.
