The middle building (brick with white storefront) was Robertson's General Store, owned by my great grandparents, John and Margaret Robertson, from about 1900, and my grandfather, Ed Robertson, until the mid-1940s. There was a large apartment above the store where my father Mel Robertson spent his childhood and teen years, with his parents and sister Emilie. (My grandmother was Laura Amelia Woodin.) In about 1936, my grandparents moved to the former Saunders home at 39 King St. West (now 154 King Street, a shadow of its former self), where members of our family lived until my father's death in 2001.
