Description: Mr. W. O’Hara owned a small store in the 1920s which was situated on the highway opposite the west gate of Lorne Park Estates, from which he supplied the cottagers with groceries, etc. The Lorne Park Association Library was first located in the grocery store at the corner of Lakeshore Highway and Lorne Park Road, and in 1904 the library received a grant of $10.00 from the Township of Toronto. In 1928 the store burned down and the cottagers took up a collection for him. He eventually went to work in the Estates as a caretaker.
