December, 2019: Ken Johnson sent me this photo, with accompanying information, and said: "I’m sending you another photograph of First Avenue North, Geraldton, Ontario, that includes the stores that are depicted in the photo of Geraldton that you have posted on your web site.

As you can see, the trees at this stage of the community’s development are quite close to the structures. "

The businesses include (from L to R facing photo):
