Anthony (Tony) Defosse Brick & Cement Block Laying

This heavy cardboard desktop stand-up 1962 calendar with thermometer was donated to the Museum today. Tony Defosse operated his brick and cement block laying business from 536 Augustus Street in the mid-1960s. Right beside him on the s.w. corner of 6th St W at 538 was Bea’s Confectionery, operated by Edgar and Florence Lemieux. On the n.w. corner of 5th St W and Augustus was Clifford Mcteer’s blacksmith shop at 500. And mid-block at 524 was Villeneuve’s food Market.
