A search of the Toronto city directories indicates that William C. Knox (himself) set up shop at the 262 1/2 Yonge Street location sometime between 1915 and 1920. He was still there in 1930, but by 1933 other family members had joined him to form W. C. Knox Ltd. at that location. By 1935, this location became Proctor Optical, discussed elsewhere in this blog.
