DURING THE 20's  and  30's, SYDNEY grew by leaps and bounds,thanks
to the STEEL PLANT. Joe AZAR, a prominent businessman who  lived on
RIGBY ROAD, operated the STUDEBAKER and AUSTIN auto franchises.The
building, on GEORGE STREET, next to present  MIDAS MUFFLER, also housed
a NEW BUSINESS to come later on...The Sydney and Whitney Pier Bus Co.

     In EARTHQUAKE struck SYDNEY and area,causing minor
damage,but a MAJOR SCARE.History notes this was the 1st and ONLY
one to ever hit  here.... streets were flodded(what else is new)...
merchandise fell from merchants shelves and the WASHING BROOK  
overflowed its banks...(again).

     One of the most popular and busiest GROCERS was 
A.N. Mac Donald located on ROCKDALE AVE.Until very recent years,
it remained a Grocery Store.Presently it is an apartment building.
