Before The Moose in Carleton Place There Was—


Thanks to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum for the photos


The store began in 1921, and was owned and operated by Phillip and Leah Levine until 1983. In February 1986 there was a destructive fire but the building was rebuilt to match the original! Here is a photo of the building in circa 1925

The Hair Loft/ E2



You’ve probably seen the front of The Hair Loft and thought they were renovating. No Siree Bob! Someone stole their flowers first, and then they ripped the planter off the wall. What kind of neighbourly spirit is that? This is a small business that is trying to make Bridge Street look beautiful. Offer a lending hand or words of encouragement please. No way these gals deserve this!


What is here now?

Again thank you to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum for all their help
