A. A. FOURNELLE
| A. A. Fournelle |
A. FOURNELLE was born in North Augusta, Ont., in 1875, where, thirty-three years ago, he started to serve an apprenticeship as a cabinet-maker, latterly establishing himself independently in business there. Twenty-five years ago he came to Cornwall where he has resided ever since. Mr. Fournelle first assumed the managership of the old established firm of Farlinger & Auty, and then became manager for the late Jerry Buckley. This latter position he held for seven years. He was for a time salesman for the well-known furniture firm of Alex. McDonald & Co. He subsequently embarked independently in the furniture repairing and cabinet making, and latterly in the furniture business. Mr. Fournelle, who has made a splendid success of this last venture, has his store located in the Adams Block, first door north of A. F. Mulhern's Coal Office, Pitt Street. He carries a full line of all kinds of furniture, window shades, pictures and picture framing. He particularly features bedroom sets, parlor sets, dining room sets, and in fact all furniture used in connection with housekeeping. He also handles antique furniture, and is well equipped to supply the public in any of these lines. His services as a repairer and upholsterer are in general demand. Mr. Fournelle is a believer in moderate prices consistent with good value.
