The March 17 1920 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained this notice:
Out of curiosity, I tried to trace S. Cohen. His road was a winding one:
- In the 1920 Toronto city directory, Samuel Cohen was listed as a cleaner with a work address of 1088 Yonge and a home address of 107 Robert.
- In 1921, he was listed as Samuel Cohn at the same addresses.
- In 1922, he was listed as Samuel Cohn, with just a home address of 107 Robert and no listed occupation.
- In 1923, he was listed as a cleaner and presser at 19 Macpherson Avenue, with a home address of 107 Robert.
- In 1924, he was listed as living at 19 Macpherson Avenue with no occupation.
- In 1925, he was now listed as the owner of Northern Clothing Exchange at 19 Macpherson Avenue.
He wasn’t at 19 Macpherson in 1926, and there was no Samuel Cohen working as a cleaner or presser elsewhere in the city that year. His name is a common one – there were at least two Samuel Cohens working as cleaners and pressers in the 1928 directory – so I was unable to trace him after that.
