Notes
Although no history of Shoemaker Avenue could be found, it was listed in the Vernon City Directory as early as 1901. It remains as a listing in these directories until 1967. In 1968, the Vernon City Directory under the name Shoemaker Avenue. says "see Stirling Ave. S.". It would appear that the name changed sometime in 1967-8 and has remained Stirling Ave. S. until this present date. At the time of this photgraph a section of Shoemaker was under construction. Early directories listed the street as running from Mill Street to the city limits. It is not known which buildings are the ones visible in this photo. Albert Seip has been identified as the man sitting in the cab of the truck with "contractors" written on it. Shoemaker Avenue can be seen clearly marked on maps of Berlin/Kitchener, copies of which are held in the Grace Schmidt Room at the Kitchener Public Library: 1912 M416 1941 M015 1950s M039 Ernest Denton was a photographer in Berlin/Kitchener from approximately 1912 to 1955.

Notes
The Globe Furniture Company moved to Waterloo in 1910 after 21 years of successful business in Walkerville, Ontario. Edward F. Seagram, Aloyes Bauer and John Letter found a location on the west side of Shantz Street (later Canbar Avenue) in Waterloo Ontario, that was suitable for the expanding business. The company manufactured church and school furniture, including school desks and complete science equipment. It was particularly famous for its artistic wood carvings which were exported all over the world. The company declared bankruptcy in 1968 and the buildings were torn down in 2000. Photograph is in fair condition: water damage, tearing and creasing shown. Originally part of the Woolwich Historical Foundation collection (Photo file 135).
