INTERPROVINCIAL FLOW: In 1968, a five-month strike at Québec’s liquor stores un­corked a flood of new cus­tomers for Liquor Con­trol Board of On­tario out­lets in border towns, such as Alexan­dria. This Glen­garry County Ar­chives photo shows a line-up at the LCBO store on Main Street. As County Ar­chiv­ist Al­lan MacDon­ald notes, the process re­quired pa­tience in those days be­cause cus­tomers could not sim­ply se­lect a bot­tle from a shelf. Or­der forms had to be com­pleted be­fore staff would present the pur­chase to the client.
