NotesAlthough the Lending Library does not appear in the Montreal street directories, in the 1920s, a Max Cohen resided at 249 Villeneuve Street W, at the corner of Jeanne Mance. There had been Cohens in the immediate area since at least the mid 1910s, although 250 Villeneuve Street West operated variously as Villeneuve Handy Store and Frank's Soda and Delicatessen. It appears that Villeneuve Street West underwent renumbering in the late 1920s, as in 1929 Jeanne Mance is listed as intersecting Villeneuve Street West at #189, whereas in 1930 it intersects as #249.
