|HISTORY OF THE CORNWALL CHEESE AND BUTTER BOARD|
|THE CORNWALL MOTOR SALES COMPANY|
| A. C. Robertson|
HE Cornwall Motor Sales Company, Studebaker and Chevrolet Automobile Truck and Tractor Dealers of Cornwall, Ont., is one of the new business concerns lately launched in Cornwall. Mr. A. C. Robertson, one of the most energetic and progressive of the younger business men of Cornwall is the organizer and head of the Cornwall Motor Sales Company. Mr. Robertson was formerly engaged in the automobile business independently, having started on March 1st, 1913.
The Cornwall Motor Sales Company proposes going into business permanently and in a big way. Their progressive ideas are indicated by the fact that they have practically completed plans for the erection of a new and up-to-date garage near the corner of Pitt and Second Streets. They have been guided in this decision by two practical reasons, first, the ever-increasing growth in the automobile business, and second, the prospective advent of the new Provincial highway which will, when built, pass directly in front of their door on Second street and be the main automobile artery between Montreal and Toronto.
The Case Tractor Agency is a recent edition to the other lines carried by the Cornwall Motor Sales Company. Mr. Robertson gives it as his opinion that the tractor for general utility purposes on the farm will eventually supplant the horse and he is anticipating the prospective demand in this respect by carrying a superior type of tractor in the Case.
Essentially an optimist and a booster, Mr. Robertson typifies to a remarkable degree the success in business that may be attained by shrewd native ability and the will to succeed. And Mr. Robertson has succeeded, and it goes without saying will make a success of the Cornwall Motor Sales Company. Although established but a few years in business he has met with unusual success. He is and has been an ardent advocate of good roads, and has taken an active and untiring part in the movement espousing Cornwall's case for good roads and in placing Cornwall's claims before both the Ontario and Federal Governments.
The Cornwall Motor Sales Company's salesrooms, among the most spacious and best equipped in Eastern Ontario, are located at 148 Pitt Street, between Second and Third streets. The present garage in on Third street just off Pitt St.
The Cornwall Motor Sales Company always carries on hand one of the largest stocks of parts, accessories, tires, etc., etc., in Eastern Ontario. Efficient and reliable service is the motto of the Cornwall Motor Sales Service Station.
