Lucy of Lanark





I got this photo from the Delmer Dunlop collection at Archives Lanark on Saturday. I knew I had to compose a story for it as this picture from 1893 needed to be documented.

This is Lanark Village! BTW I am pretty sure that is the Cohen General Store on the left we are seeking information about. Beverlee Ann Clow said: The store on the right with the awning used to be Pace’s store, later Hornells. Across the street on the left, I think would have been where Mel Lee’s Hardware was when the Lanark fire happened

Here is the story I made up about the picture.

All I am Asking for is a Little Respect!
