    Notes 
    • Notes from life in Virden, Manitoba:

      "Draying: In the days of horse drawn vehicles draying was done by Wm. Wyatt, Jas. Bolton, W. W. Joslin, S. Clarke, E. H. Palmer, J. T. NORSWORTHY, Chris Miller and Jas. Burnett. They delivered express and freight, moved furniture, hauled fuel and in winter cut and delivered ice to be melted and used for the family washing...

      A list of dealers and Virden agents: Briscoe Cars... J. NORSWORTHY.

      A block was built on Wellington Street opposite the firehall. At the front corner near the Scarth cottage was a store that was used for flour and feed or for storage purposes, with living rooms above. Beside it was the broad entrance to a livery stable which occupied the back of the lot. Above this entrance was a hayloft and the story goes that a farmer bringing in a load of hay and seeing no one about, put it in at an open window which proved to be a window of the living room of the upstairs tenant. Succeeding details have been lost in the mists of time but no doubt wha followed was like a movie reel run backward. J. T. NORSWORTHY here ran a livery and feed business.
