George Brown Cartage was an important business in Verdun. Founded in 1911, it was situated at 1100 Hickson at the corner of Cool. These photos date back to the 30s. George Brown was also a Verdun city counsellor. I have counted 20 vehicules on the top photo and approximately the same on the bottom photo. Many Verdunites must have worked there. The top photo was possibly taken along the Aqueduct or around that area as you can see the Hydro pylons in the background and the Hickson/Cool area is nearby. I am familiar with that area as we lived just around the corner from there, on Bond street wich is now Évangéline. A V.C.member gave us some information on this cartage company a way back but unfortunaly I did not keep his comments but since I am opening an Album on this subject, perhaps he will come forth with his comments.
