411 Victoria Ave., Regina, SK is a special location because it started out as the residence and business address of Mathias and Evelyn Lang, who are Robert’s grandparents. Mathias and Evelyn lived above the pool hall they ran. When their son Frank married Rose, a small addition onto this house became the new couple’s first home.
In 1966, Frank Lang started the family business, Glass Suppliers & Installations Ltd, at this very location. Not unlike young entrepreneurs today, Frank started the business by working out of the old pool hall basement. He added a business phone at their residence so that Rose could help from home while raising their family.
The business flourished. They soon tore down the pool hall and built a new, larger shop to serve the growing needs of customers. This new building is what stands today as Glass Suppliers at 411 Victoria Ave, Regina, SK.
