The E. A. Morris block has been restored to appear much as it looked in 1938 (to get some idea of how much restoration work was required, have a look at version of this building in 1974 that housed The Villager). It’s a pity that the same cannot be said of its eastward neighbours. The buildings that housed Millar & Coe China, Sheppard Shoes, and Reitman’s in 1974 have, sadly, have had their facades clad in metal.

    Ah, Millar and Coe! My mother would take me there as a treat…they had an incredible toy department upstairs where she could dump me for however long while she looked at the fine china.
