1090 College St., built 1909.
A sweet little building that still advertises for one of its earliest tenants. Wilfred Magee had his hardware store here until 1914, when Peter Snowball moved in to try his own hand at the business. Mr. Snowball (you realize there are some words you just don’t expect to find as surnames) kept it up until at least 1918. It’s hard to say whose name graces the brick.
It’s a shame the two storefronts couldn’t agree on a second story window they liked.
