Tom Edwards–
That’s a great pic of Mr and Mrs Moore. They were great people. I used to deliver them the newspaper when I was younger lol a lot younger. If I remember correctly, they lived in the apartment to the right in the Moore house. Barb MacFarlane lived upstairs and she ran the penny candy store on the left hand side of the Moore house. I’m not sure about it but I think Mr Moore had something to do with boy scouts or cubs in Carleton Place. I remember Barb sometimes flipped me a small bag of MoJos

  1. Linda, thanks for this, and for your daily looks into the past. Even though my family moved from CP in 1940 I still feel a great kinship with the town and the people.

    Question(s)! Referring to the photo hand-written caption, who was the Doyle Rossie was married to? The caption also notes her children (I assume), Mike and Billie Doyle. Do you know anything more about them? Are they still alive and do they live in Carleton Place? I would certainly like to find out if they were part of my strain of Doyles.

    I plan on being in CP sometime in September and would love to meet you and thank you in person for all the work you do that I enjoy so much.
