Jim in his lateteens trained as a tinsmith, but did not work at it until in his 50's. Prior to that he had been in partnership in a Hardware business. Recently in a book on the 75th Anniversary of Star City, SK. I found the note, - "The town had the best Tinsmith who ever handled tin, namely, Mr. James Anderson." (GW)



Star City - Star City lost one of its most prominent and best beloved citizens on March 5, when James Anderson died in his 72nd year. He died after a short illness having been active in his tinsmithing business until three weeks before his death.

He was an Elder in the Presbyterian Church and later in the United Church and also had been a Sunday School Superintendent at various times.

In Star City, Mr. Anderson conducted a tinsmithing business. He was a memberof the Town Council, First President of the Rink Association and for several years Secretary of the Curling Club. He was keenly interested in gardening and made his home a real beauty spot with trees, shrubs, flowers, fruit trees and aproductive vegetable garden.

The funeral service was held in the Star City United Church, with the Rev. W. G. Mahon officiating. The pulpit and pulpit platform were covered with flowers, testimony to the esteem in which he was held byhis wide circle of friends. Pallbearers were S. G. Edworthy, M. Mooney, S. G.Starkey, J.
