Queen Street had fewer cars, as seen in this picture circa the spring of 1973. Three businesses are visible here. The first is The Corner Store, which used to be Mulholland’s clothing store and today is Taylors Bakery. The next little store used to be Gus Tranter’s barber shop and is now called Frankie Sez. The last building is the Brock Theatre as it looked before being taken over by the Shaw Festival. Before the Shaw renamed it the Royal George it had been owned by the Canadian Mime Theatre.
