    • H. Weitzel
      Mr. H. Weitzel was born in Tavistock, Ont., and there learned his trade. Three years ago he bought the bakery business of Mr. Geo. Weismiller in Elmira. By diligent attention to the wants of his patrons he has maintained a good business and is furnishing a first class article. [The building was standing at 9 Arthur Street North until 2008, when it was demolished.]
