Author’s Note– I could not do my “job” unless Jennifer Fenwick Irwin, curator the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum put up with my consistent knocking at her door and whining for information. This was a former post from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum.
This morning Mary Ann Bannon Robertson from Burlington, Ontario posted the picture below on The Tales of Carleton Place and was looking for information. This is what Jennifer came up with and is posted on the Museum’s Facebook page. By the way if you are looking for anything on that page there is a ‘search’ bar on the top left.:)
Mary Ann Bannon Robertson sent me this photo but Donovan Hastie was the originator of the photo– the picture of the fellow riding the horse and wagon and I am sure that it is my Grandfather Osie Hastie. He would have been about 16 then.
This recently donated photo below shows the interior of Lloyd M. Tetlock‘s Plumbing and Heating Store in the 1920’s. It was located at 126 Bridge Street. Osie and Roy Hastie later purchased the business in 1945 and expanded the store into 128 Bridge Street.
The Town Directory of 1936 lists Lloyd M. Tetlock‘s business at 82 Bridge Street and his residence as 11 Emily Street. The fact that address numbers changed over the years sometimes makes research on historical buildings difficult!
Lloyd Tetlock left his mark on the front step of 126 Bridge Street….look for this brick when you are entering the building!

Jody Ferguson– Hey Linda – this was 128 Bridge Street back in the 1920’s. One of the Tetlock brothers (John?) and his wife (Margaret/Marguerite?). Was my old shop, Voila, 2 years ago, and now home to Stiletto Tattoos. Unfortunately, all I had was a folded-up, somewhat faded print-out to work with. Mr. Tetlock’s initials are stamped in the bricks of the front step of 126 Bridge Street, the other half of his building.
