Using Google Earth street view, the pic below is where the factory address points to, but I can't see any Dingwall sign or poster. Is G/E wrong? [img:23dylx8c]http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r200/xt660/ac9271f7.jpg[/img:23dylx8c] Not being nosey, just curiosity...

It used to be, I think. That's the Broadway addess? Looks like it. They moved since then. I'd post a pic if Sheldon would let me, but the building itself really isn't much to look at. The "sign" is just a single golden "D" about 6" across Not even noticeable unless you know the address and what you're looking for. Low key. (Wouldn't you want to be with the amount of instruments in there?!?) Come by and I'll take you for a tour (of Saskatoon, Sheldon will have to deal with shop tours)! :)

This green building is more likely to be workshopfront (if I got the address right) [url:5wrl1d68]http://maps.google.fr/maps?q=B+518+44th+St+E+Saskatoon,+SK+S7K+0W1&hl=fr&ll=52.161357,-106.661454&spn=0.000002,0.001904&sll=49.004793,2.235788&sspn=0.007108,0.015235&vpsrc=6&z=19&layer=c&cbll=52.161357,-106.661454&panoid=sQKp9AEGK6dJw20SMn7XbQ&cbp=12,11.84,,0,1.62[/url:5wrl1d68] The neighbourhood looks to be full of useful workshops and toolshops, which must be good if something's required in a hurry. And I believe next door is a great place to pick up chicks - it's a hatchery :)

Fletch has got it, thats where Dingwalls new shop is located. The one you posted GW is where they moved from. And there isn't any posters or anything. Just inside those glass doors is a short staircase going up, and one going down to the right. From outside you can see in and at the bottom of the one going down there is a wood door with a "Dingwall" sticker on it. That is all. And it is still there to this day. That green building is located in Saskatoon's "North Industrial" area, which is the area which I work. Lots of shops for anything and everything from woodworking to metal fabrication, parts, mechanics. Much better location IMO, more centralized to the industry suppliers.
