George Brown Cartage
George Brown Cartage was situated at 1100 Hickson Ave. corner Cool and was founded in 1911. George Brown was a Verdun city counsellor. I took a photo of the same building on saturday morning and you will notice that it is basically the same building that was renovated as the windows and doors are in the same place. i estimate that the old photo of the fleet of vehicules is around the 1930s. This company must have given much needed jobs to many Verdunites specially during the depression years. I posted the old photo on the old site and a member mentioned that the company was sold to another cartage company with other interesting details. Perhaps this same person will respond as I would like to add to the history for our archives. Check out my photo album no. 14 for further details.
