22 Bank St.The 1888 City Directory says the location was used by the Maxwell Brothers Livery Stable. In 1899, Thomas Smith ,successor to the Smith Brothers, had an ad in the Directory promoting his business. It read, “Livery and Undertaker (Hearses and carriages furnished for funerals). By 1915 the building went back to being a simple livery stable run by Dana Morton. By 1930, the new ways had taken over and the location was used by Chauncey McFarlane Autos. In 1935 the site had become the “Club Paradise Restaurant and by 1944 it was vacant. By 1948 either a new or renovated building housed Roy Motors.
