Blue House with flowers & nice pair of legs. Unionville, Ont. - 1880. Formerly a Barber shop, shoe store, library, taxidermy.

Unionville, small town Ontario. Most houses on Main Street are from 1840 -1890.

This home was owned by Thomas and Charlotte McDowell, who ran a shoe making business from 1882. During the mid 1890s, the store was operated by first by Ben Dixon, a barber, and then by a taxidermist William Brodie. Finally, in 1928, Stanley Stiver, a descendent of one of the Town's original families, bought the property. Talbert Findley came to Unionville in 1915 and along with his brother Dean, operated a barber shop here. The Unionville library was also housed here for a number of years.

This year, there is a store "Magic Needle Fashion". That dress may or may not be from there.......

I took 4 photos in quick succession. This one was #2. I selected this one as the lady was showing me the backside and this fine example of Ontario architecture could end up on G.E......Alas
