Hamel’s Grocery & General Merchandise


In the 1920s and 1930s, Ernest G. Hamel operated a grocery and general store at 33 Edward Street with the family home located nearby at 351 Montreal Road. That’s him on the left in this photo from the 1920s.

The store was located in the historic Gladstone South (later renamed East Cornwall) former Cornwall Township neighbourhood.

Please follow this LINK to view an article on Hamel’s political and community involvement.

This is an example of the many photographs depicting Cornwall businesses in the archives of the Cornwall Community Museum.
