Baildon Red & White Store - 1914

This building was originally built in Baildon, Sask. and was used as a general and grocery storee. Later on, it was used as a community hall. The grey counter (which is the oldest one), and the turquoise counter (more recent) both were used in this store. The curved display case used to be in Maple Leaf Bakery in Moose Jaw. Customers and clerks could stay warm near the potbelly stove. The object that looks like a large football is a hog oiler. The farmer put old crank-case oil in it, then the pigs could rub up against it and get oil all over themselves to keep the flies and sun away from their sensitive skin.

Look at all the goodies!!!!!!
