Just a question about a Bdn business

Does anyone know what years Wilson's Stationery was situated on Rosser avenue in Brandon ?

60's and 70's

Those two decades for sure, but sorry can't be more exact.

MY

My first move out of Brandon was 1979. I'm quite sure they were here then but not sure where.

town centre

I know for sure they were in the Towne Centre in early/mid 80's. I'm not sure where they were before that time or how long they were there till though.

Wow phantoms

That's an awesome photo. I remember Ricki's in that area but I don't remember Wilson's there. I believe that is a view looking east making Wilson's on the south side of rosser.

Wilson's

Yep, Wilson's was on the South side of Rosser. I'm just trying to get some info after having a conversation about a few stores in downtown Brandon. Thanks everyone for your input.

10th &; Rosser

looking east. Building on the right is the Bank of Montreal at 10th and Rosser. Looks like Willson was in 934 or 932 Rosser. Picture looks like early 60s - when was Rosser two way?

How cool is that?

I am trying to get my bearings on this photo. If Willson's was on the north side of Rosser, then the photo is looking to the west. I just don't recall Rosser being two way traffic.  
 
Also thinking that this was a privately owned business due to the spelling of the name "Willson" with two "l's".  
 
Do you recall what the cross street would be?  
Thanks for a memory.

Looking at the cars in the picture, I do not see anything newer than early-mid fifties.

Willson's Stationery - Other Picture

I have spent the past half-hour or so looking at all the vintage pictures on the website linked by phantoms-thank you.  
 
There is another picture of the Willson's storefront. You can even make out some of the items available for sale!

What a wonderful trip down memory lane, even if I am a bit too young to remember everything

Willson Stationers

was a national chain. Owned by Federal Industries (at least, in the 80s).
