Exploring photos with Jim Smith: Ross Hunter

Ross Hunter was a mechanic at the BA (British American) service station on Queen Street, as seen in this picture.

Today, the Shaw Cafe is on the site of the garage at the corner of Queen and Victoria streets. Many times when I was a boy I took my flat tire bicycle tube to the station where Ross Hunter would put a patch on it for me. I was allowed to go in the garage and watch Mr. Hunter patch the tube. It cost me 25 cents. Many will remember Mr. Hunter as a leader to the Virgil Scouts for many years. As Virgil did not have a scout lodge, the meetings were held downstairs in the Virgil Public School.
