  • Notes 
    • Mr. Kirkland continued as Tenant of Mr. John Phin until 1894. In that year, John R. Phin, having graduated from the Ontario School of Pharmacy decided to start in Hespeler and in his father's store. An attempt was made to buy Mr. Kirkland out but he refused to sell and moved his stock into a store across the way and there remained until he moved to Galt in 1897 where he finished out his days.

      John R. Phin, upon his death in 1953 was succeeded by his son, Robert McIntyre Phin who had been many years with his father after he too graduated as a Druggist. And so, drugs have been sold over the counter at this one location, now Phin's Drug Store, from 1882 until the present; more than three score years and ten.
