How many times have you walked by this building and wondered about it? I personally thought it was just a lovely style of architecture, never thinking twice.
Bars were always on the early buildings but these looked sturdy. But again, never thought about it
It is now the home of Dr. Cameron Elilis who is a dental surgeon here at 17 Franklin Street.
Look at these doors!
This is what the building used to look like. The present Scotiabank building was constructed in 1974 replacing the 1902 structure. Originally the Bank of Ottawa and established in 1883 and operated out of the red brick building above, until a fire destroyed the upper part of the building.
Find out about the fires in Carleton Place on August 19th if you attend the “Smoke on the Water” Walking Tour- The Fires of Carleton Place. Details to follow soon!
