This photo shows his first truck, fashioned from a Model T Ford. Beriah's son Harold stands at left alongside his mother and younger brother Raymond. When Beriah Ogilvie started on Warren Avenue, there was no store, just a barn where he kept horses for teaming and hauling. Beginning in 1928 the company had a yard and railroad siding at the end of Warren Avenue where coal and supplies could be unloaded. B.L. Ogilvie began with teaming and before long was selling hay, grain, building materials, wood, coal, cement, and farm implements. The photo shows the grain room and lumber yard in 1941.
