1955 Regina Directories
« on: Tuesday 09 February 10 11:04 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I have found my gt uncle in 1955, but I am still not sure if this is his address behind his name or not, I have not used a directory before, and hope someone can help, the entry reads:

Scott David J R (Dorothy) emp Consumers Co-op refy h 2137 Queen.

I am trying to find out how long he had been in Regina, and where he lived.

Thanks
Ann

Hi Ann,

I believe the address on Queen Street would be his home address....it's a residential area of Regina.

There is a bit of the history of the Consumer Cooperative refinery which was/is situated in the north end of Regina on this website.

Hi Lisa and Susan,

Thank you both for your help, I thought the address might be his employers, he must have had a career change as he had been a farm worker for many years, I will have a look at the co-op refinery history, and might get some more clues.

Thanks again
Ann
