Jack, Pretty good for a "newbe". The question now is "Where did Jake Barnes live"? Congratulations. Don Luxton

The Hobbs harness shop, now my home, was moved to North Street in Hamilton in 1948.

Don, I don't know ... being a newbe .... but I do know his father was the town postmaster long before you were, 1809.
