Cookes Fine Foods

Shirley Gibson-Langille


I completed this painting of Cooke's Fine Foods 61 Brock Street in 2012. Through many years, visiting the store, I remembered first Mr. Hugh G Cooke, then his son John R,. Cooke and his daughter Susan D. Cooke. Three generations. It was always a red letter day for me when I visited Cooke's and treated myself to oat cakes, ginger marmalade, a pound of special blend Mr. Cooke's coffee and wedge of his famous Old Canadian Cheddar Cheese.
About the artist:

Over the past many years, Shirley has given and continues to give her artists’ perspective to so many of the unique nooks and crannies of Kingston, as well as the other special locations she captures in her work.
