Mr. Taft began his apprenticeship in 1908 at his native Carrying Place. Two years later he came to Brighton to work for the late James McCracken, in a shop located on the corner of Prince Edward and Park Street, site of the garage formerly operated by Sam Swain, and now owned by Spencer's Dairy. Mr. Taft began working for himself in 1915, when he purchased the business of the late J. J.

Later he moved to Park Street, and in 1939 erected the present building on Richardson Street." pg. 356, History of Brighton Business, Susan Brose, 200912
