Coton Girls SOLD

Coton's Grocery, (originally named Round the Corner),
was a small neighbourhood grocery store operated
by Mr. & Mrs. Leonard Coton and their three
daughters Eileen, Pat, & Marjorie.
Marjorie's daughter, Mary, (who commissioned this painting),
remembers working in the store as well.
Although the building is currently used as a
private residence, it is on record as
"the best preserved storefront in Esquimalt".

  1. Great piece Linny...
    Makes me want to go back there and buy some bubble chocolate, gum and soda, then head down to the waterfront with some friends to 'down' the spoils.

  2. Thanks for the "memory lane" comment, Ken... now that we're reminiscing, do you remember the little drawstring sacks full of gold nugget gum and the wax thumbs (or was it fingers) that were full of some kind of sugary liquid goo?
