and drink Coca Cola

Philip & Greenaway
The wholesale trade in fruits, produce, etc, is being rapidly developed, and ranks among our more enterprising pursuits. Port Hope affords a good centre for fruit and produce operations, and among those identified with the trade is that of Messrs Philip & Greenaway. The business has been conducted by the above firm for the past 18 years. This house has built up a nice trade, which extends over a territory covering 150 miles. They are wholesale fruit and produce merchants and deal in fruits and produce of all kinds. The highest cash price paid for eggs is a special feature. Their warerooms are located on John Street, phone 22. The superior facilities enjoyed by this firm, dealing largely, buying for cash, and dealing always directly with farmers and fruit growers, enables them to offer their customers superior inducements. They always handle an excellent class of goods, and are fair and honourable in all their dealings. Personally Messrs F H Philip and W Greenaway, the proprietors, are energetic and thorough men of business, with a record of which they can well afford to feel proud.

too much stuff

in spring and fall a dumpster is brought for people to get rid of their larger items (mainly furniture)
it always fills up quickly, but this is the first time a second dumpster has been brought in.
