  • Notes 
    • R.T. Morton, Dealer in Groceries, Dry Goods and Gents' Furnishings, Stanley Street - Among the commercial resources of Ayr, none is of greater importance than that represented in groceries and dry goods. Everywhere these staple articles constitute most important features of the commercial fabric of cities and towns, and those engaged in business must possess energy, ability and tact. Prominent among those carrying on a trade in these lines is Mr. R.T. Morton. This gentleman commenced business in 1876, having since built up a splendid trade, which ranks among the largest and fines of its kind in Ayr. Mr. Morton carries a complete line of groceries of excellent quality, a general and complete stock of dry goods, as also of gents' furnishings. The whole stock is of excellent quality throughout, and being purchased on the most favorable terms, this gentleman is in a position to offer special inducements to the customer. It goes without saying, therefore, that the large trade carried on is constantly increasing. Mr. Morton is an energetic and thorough man of business, honorable and upright in all his dealings. He is widely known and is held in high esteem in the community. He has devoted a portion of his time to  public affairs, and is at present a member of the Board of School Trustees.1a
