  • Notes 
    • Allan & McKenzie

      Dealers in general Hardware, Tinware and Stoves, Main street. This firm succeeded Mr. Trotter, who for many years supplied the country far and near with such goods as a first-class hardware store kept. None are better fitted than Allan & McKenzie to keep the trade, and if practical knowledge and willing hands count for anything then they fill the bill. 1a
