This has been on the corner of Cook St. and Caledonia St. since forever. Well, okay not that long but for a long time and being nostalgic I love the old sign. Here's what the website says, "Stan Thompson Auto Upholstery was started by Stan Thompson in 1952. Self-employment was very appealing to Stan, and his business’ longevity has proven that his choice was a wise one. A second generation business, Stan’s son Steve Thompson is also an upholstery specialist. He has been working with his father since the age of 5, spending weekends learning the craft from his father." - Fern
