Stephen and Lloyd Jewkes and the 5 cent to $1 Store have been among AHA!’s strongest supporters of Imagine Antigonish. They have underwritten the costs of scanning and printing hundreds of heritage photos, in preparation for restoration. And they have taken a personal interest in the project. Early on in the process, Stephen took my queries about the former occupants of Main Street to his mother, Sheila Jewkes, during what I understand were his regular lunches with his mother. This is the annotated detail she provided on the Ronnie Jaques photo.
