Camel's nose

In 1937 H.T. Ferron purchased land south of the Woolen Mills neighborhood. Classic camel's nose under the tent event, the day the first H.T. Ferron concrete truck short-cut through the Woolen Mills residential neighborhood, traveling north on the footpath under the railroad tracks, then roaring west on Woolen Mills Road.
I ran into the advertisement above in the 1928 Lane High School yearbook. Could it be the same H.T. Ferron? Was H.T. into music before he was into concrete?
Music soothes the savage beast? Not in this case.

HT Ferron had a record company downtown on main street before the concrete company.
