The above photo was published on page 12 the Midland Free Press September 3rd, 1958.
Van Pypen’s Department Store can be seen in the background as 4th Ave is resurfaced.
This is the caption that accompanied the photo:
“It’s quite a mess right now, but Port McNicoll’s Fourth Ave will be a much improved thoroughfare in a few weeks, when badly-needed new paving is installed. Seventh Ave. and Third Street will also be paved
in a program which also includes ditching, curbing and the laying of some sidewalks.”
This photo appeared on the front page the same day – September 3rd, 1958 with the following caption:
“These two men, Kenneth Price, left, and Kelvin Ward, are in charge of the paving program now underway at Port McNicoll. Mr. Price of Toronto is an engineer for 0. A. Meadows and Associates Ltd., while Mr. Ward, from Barrie, is foreman for the Disher-Farrand Co. Portions of three village streets are getting new paved surfaces.”
