Daily Photo: Ward and Patch

Ward and PatchI used to frequent Ward and Patch, a sporting goods store on Annette just east of Jane. It closed a few years ago, and is now a hardware store, but in the back alley you can still find an old Ward and Patch sign.

What a coincidence you found this at this time.
Patch Adams and the Children's Ward comes to mind.

twins from bolton

When I lived in T.O. I used to bike there a lot especially in the spring & summer when I was playing baseball in early 70's.

I became involved with Bolton Baseball Exec. as equipment mgr. & decided to make a change from previous supplier to Ward & Patch.

The 1st time I walked in I saw somebody I recognized 30 years earlier. I said I remember you from 30 years ago. He said his name was Aaron. We struck a good working relationship for the next 2-3 years until they closed & they moved to Mississauga with another sports store.

Spent alot of Bolton Braves $ there for equipment & supplies over those years & always was giving freebies to our association.

The stock requirements just outgrew the size of the store.
