Notice biographique

In 1946 John Cuthbert "Bert" Valentine and Edward Francis "Ted" Halford established Halford and Valentine, a car dealership, at 17th Avenue and 1st Street SW, Calgary, Alberta. The company sold Austins, Studebakers and Ramblers. It moved to 101-12th Avenue SW in the early 1950s. In 1967 it moved to 1415-1st Street SW and began to sell Volvos. Bert's son, Ted, took over as president on his father's retirement, and the company was re-incorporated as Halford and Valentine (1968) Ltd. In 1984 Ted Valentine received the Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award for Alberta. By 2000 the business had been renamed Valentine Volvo, and in that year it relocated to 11 Richard Way SW.
