The Repars – Plymouth St.

The Repars of Plymouth St. - Mr. and Mrs. Repar with their children: Vic, Rosemary, Mel, Audrey and George. This photo was taken in their front yard. You can see the neighbourhood telephone behind them. Most homes did not have a telephone. A barber by trade, during the war Mr. Repar worked in one of the city's munitions factories, which made him eligible for a wartime house. After the war, Mr. Repar returned to barbering.
