Two years later he came to Brighton to work for the late James McCracken, in a shop located on the corner of Prince Edward and Park Street, site of the garage formerly operated by Sam Swain, and now owned by Spencer's Dairy. Mr. Taft began working for himself in 1915, when he purchased the business of the late J. J. Corlett located in the old Coyle Shop near the corner of Young and Sanford Streets, site of the present Curtis Marshall residence. Later he moved to Park Street, and in 1939 erected the present building on Richardson Street." pg. 356, History of Brighton Business, Susan Brose, 200912
