    • Flash from the Past: Service station was at the hub of tiny Centreville

      Much has changed in the Centreville area of Kitchener in recent decades.

      When our mystery photo of July 3 was snapped - probably sometime about 1940 - the Shell service station that Walter Good operated at 2934 King St. E. was situated not in Kitchener but in Waterloo Township. The multi-lane Highway 8 we know today didn't exist. Nor did Fairway Road. And the Grand River Railway still carried passengers back and forth between Kitchener and Preston - passing just a hundred metres or so behind Good's garage.

      That's Walter standing on the right in the photo. And the man on the left is his brother-in-law, Howard Heimpel.....

      Well, today the site is a small retail plaza at the northwest corner of King Street East and Morgan Avenue. On the northeast corner is the Radisson Hotel Kitchener Waterloo. And across King Street is the Guest Inn Motel at King Street East and Kingsbury Drive....
