  • My first savings account when I was about twelve was at Farmers and Merchants Bank. So sad to see what’s become of Good Hope shopping area. It was such a big part of my life growing up. Thanks for posting, Sharon

    Also fond memories of that area when growing up.

    Seemed like just about anything needed was within walking distance a block or so in any direction - haircut, hardware, hospital, shoe repair, groceries, restaurants, healthcare stuff, jeweler, dressing-up attire, doctor, adult beverage places, TV repair, a quick-shop, drycleaners, gas station, as well as the bank where I was turned onto the magic of growing money with passbook savings.

    Then, there was the hike to and from Lorimier school...

    Occasionally enjoy tooling around Ebay - find some neat memorabilia about Cape, once one sorts through all the repetitive yearbooks and ads for tee-shirts and street signs. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=%22cape+girard...
