Businesses & Services:  1911 – 1944


The 1911 Carruthers Caveat prohibits businesses in the area of Glenora, west of Groat Ravine. As a result, businesses and services develop on the periphery of the neighbourhood, particularly along 124 Street, then known as Edwards Street. Early businesses providing services to Glenora residents include Milton McCray’s garage to repair and store vehicles, Giles Meat Market, and the Glenora Service Station.  Milk, ice, bread, and coal are delivered to homes by horse and wagon.  Fresh vegetables are grown and delivered by Chinese gardeners who have gardens below and east of Government House.
