Here is a classic photo of True Value Hardware in Swan River, Manitoba. This photo was taken around the year 2000. Notice the slabs decorating the building – the indicates the photo was taken while the business was decorated for the Northwest Roundup and Exhibition.
At one time, most downtown businesses decorated for the exhibition in this fashion.
True Value hardware has by the year 2020 become Ace Hardware. Years prior to being True Value the store was known as Macleods Hardware.
