We’ve had a request for old photos of the ball diamonds near Riverside Park… This photo by Howard Edwards of a lacrosse match (date unknown) shows Lake Avenue West to the right and St. Mary’s Church on Hawthorne Street in the distance. Just look at the crowd watching the action!–Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum

Photographer was James Howard Edwards, Shane Wm. Edwards’ grandfather. His father, William Howard Edwards donated a copy of the photograph to the museum.
