How Much History Can One Man Find?
Apparently a lot! This time on Dean’s last visit he found an envelope stamped and dated from Smallman & Ingram in London Ontario where his grandmother Mabel used to work. Mabel was born in 1891 and started working at Smallman when she was only 8 or 9 years old. She eventually moved on to Kingmill’s and then finally to Simpsons/Sears because they paid her five cents more a week! There she stayed and was the oldest living employee making it all the way to 103. I guess it’s true what they say. Hard work pays off – at least five cents more a week anyways. 😁. What Dean Found Last Time
