Photo from Steve Flint..The man with his arm up against the TVs is my grandfather Bob Flint. Also in the picture who at the time worked for my grandfather is well known since passed carpenter Bruce Sadler. Bill Baird is also in this photo. This would have been taken around 1954 to 1956. The first shipment of course TVs to Carleton Place. At the time I was told there were 3 places in Canada to get colour tv. Toronto , Montreal and Carleton Place.
