    Post First Fully Motorized Dept in the Country???

    Hey folks,
    I was wondering if anybody could tell me what the first fully motorized dept in the country was? I have heard of two depts that both claim that distinction, but I want to know if anybody else has there ideas. Thanks.

    I believe the distinction goes to Cincinati, Ohio.

    In Canada the distinction goes to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

    Sorry I don't know the dates but I hope this helps.

    Well, Cinci wasn't what I had in mind. I was thinking it was in Ohio, but I was actually thinking it was Akron or Youngstown. I am trying to confirm if it was Youngstown. They became fully motorized in 1912-1913. If any body can fill me in, I would appreciate it.
