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

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.

  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.
