A lightly edited partial transcription of the Items of Local Interest column on page 7 of the 
18 Sep 1919 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

Mr. W. L. Cameron, owner of the Melbourne Hotel block, has built, in what was the arcade leading from Robinson Street to the stables, a neat, plate-glass fronted shop.

This has been rented by Joseph De Salvo, a returned soldier, and he has opened up a shoe-shining parlor.

The appointments of the place are neat, the proprietor is obliging and capable. He hopes to merit the patronage not only of the gentlemen, but the ladies of the community.

Young De Salvo went to war with the late Major Dugit, and was severely wounded. The Reformer commends his enterprise to its readers as in every way deserving of their sympathy.
