Five Roses Flour
For all you Greenfield Park expatriates. Smuckers has bought out Five
Roses. The word on the street is that the sign on Mill street might be
coming down. Anyone who has travelled to Montreal on the Victoria
Bridge by Car, Streetcar, Chambles Transport Bus using one of these (or other) will recall seeing the sign on the way in. The sign has been there since 1947. I
don't remember , but I believe that at one time the sign might have
been bilingual with the word FLOUR under the FIVE ROSES
Maybe it changed in the 70's like everything else around here.
Thanks Ivan R.
