From a 2006 Interview with DZ.
Nipigon Historical Museum Archives

"You know, living behind the store you got to see a lot of different people."

"Some guys would come in from the bush and they had spent the whole winter in the bush and they would come in with their cheques and they would give them to my Dad. Dad would cash them and put the money in an envelope in the safe for them and then they would head for the beer parlor, then they would come back every so often for more money. When the money was all gone they would go back to the camps to work again."

"I saw that many times."

"Imagine, they trusted my Dad with their money. He would cash it and put it in an envelope and away they would go."

"There was a lot of trust in those days."
