This two-storey brick building in Carman consists of two adjacent structures designed and built by Edmund Watson around 1897. The most northerly building was built for John W. Jamieson to house his Dufferin Leader newspaper. The corner building served as Carman’s second post office and a branch of the Bank of Hamilton. Throughout the years, these buildings have accommodated the telephone office (1911-1958), a tailor, photographers, and restaurants, along with other businesses.
