[Editor's Note: On this map, in 1950, Highway 3A was also described as Highway 58, which was named in 1935 and still exists today. This highway carries the following current names (I assume in different places) : King's Highway 58, Niagara Roads 20, 41, 50 & 54. The farm was probably on the opposite side of the Seaway Mall, Niagara Street, Highway 50, that is Highway 58 or Highway 3A in 1941]
