There Are Places I Remember — The Doors of Bridge Street in Carleton Place


Jim Morrison once said, “There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.”


This was Main Street a long time ago. You can see where the old stores were at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum.

I took a few pictures of half of the current Bridge Street in Carleton Place. They are random photos, no special selection, and will do more in a few weeks. How many do you know? Answers at the bottom.

The doorway was nice but so was the interior– wow!!

Through this door resides the unofficial Mayor of Carleton Place.. Do you know his name?
