Description : B/W photograph of a hardware store owned by J. Henderson, c.1890-1900. The shop is located in the first storey of a three storey brick building. The building has ornamental brick masonry surrounding the window tops, beneath the cornice and within a central triangular pediment. A long sign across the first storey entrance reads: "Bar Non Hardware J. Henderson Paints Oils". The sign continues along the side of the building. Four men are standing in front of the entrance, while one man is visible in the doorway on the left side. A white label is attached to the front of the image, across the bottom, which reads: "J. Henderson's store in the 90's".
Commentaires : Henderson's Hardware was located on the corner of Southwest corner of First Street and Hurontario Street. History: Mr. J. Henderson was originally from Barrie and his business was in the premises once occupied by the Queen's Hotel, at the Southwest corner of Huron Street and Ste. Marie Street. Henderson's was established in 1870. The firm carried on a business in general hardware, steam fittings, boat supplies, iron and steel. Mr. J.H. Henderson later moved his business to Edmonton, Alberta. Mr. George Henderson then leased a store in the Cameron Block, to which he moved the plumbing business he had been carrying on for some time, and added a number of other lines, including: engine supplies in considerable variety, a large stock of paints, oils and painting supplies, stoves and house furnishings. The building later housed the Lyric Theatre on the first storey and A.J. Brown's Knitting Mill above, before the building burnt down in the fall of 1925. The building was constructed in 1882.
