- The famous “Vine Avenue” issue.
fought in committee and council
a dozen occasions. was moved
farther toward decision.Council
sustained recommendations of the
property committee rejecting an
application of the Consolidated Bottle Company Limited to conduct a second-hand business, bottles only,
at 50-80 Vine Ave.
It backed another recommenda-
tion that bill be introduced to
prohibit use of lands or erection or
of buildings on Vine Ave. for
junk shops or yards, second-band
shops or yards. or foundries.
The net result is that the bottle
concern may continue operation of
its bottle salvage plant in the rear
of 27-67 Vine Ave., but may not use
its new yard at 50-80 Vine Ave., nor
acquire other premises for that pur-
pose on the street.
