Milton Businesses in 1917

By Muriel Bristol (Transcriber) | April 19, 2020

Many of the merchants that had paid extra in the prior directory for bolded uppercase entries, or supplementary advertisements on the advertisement pages, scaled back their expenditure in this directory.

Many have multiple entries, due to having multiple product lines or lines of business listed in different categories.

WEST MILTON. The Sunset Grocery Co. of Milton, which has covered the local delivery route the last eight years, has discontinued this branch of its service. A feature which will be missed almost as much as the good service which the route has furnished its patrons will be the semi-weekly calls of the popular driver, Dana Tuttle, who recently resigned his position to enter the employ of the Spaulding & Sons Mfg. Co. at North Rochester. Mr. Tuttle has been in the employ of the Sunset since immediately after his graduation from Nute high school some nine years ago and during his connection with the store has made many friends who wish him the best of future success (Farmington News, February 16, 1917).
