From Marty Taylor
My mother, Marion Taylor, is 94, and is staying with me for a month. She told me something I never knew. When we lived at 134 Union St in the 60s, she used to do house cleaning, to make enough money to fly home to England to visit her family. One of the houses she cleaned, was the big Taylor house, down the road from us. (Terry Young, do you remember her?) She also told me she cleaned a beauty parlor, but doesn’t remember the name. She also helped out at a nursery school on Church St, near the CR Gamble funeral home. I’ll be squeezing her memory for more info.
She thinks it was Doris Comba she helped at the nursery school and possibly an owner of the Gamble funeral home?? Mom now thinks it may have been Comba Funeral Home??
Just found this photo of my mom at the beach in Almonte sometime in the 60s
And can’t believe I found this pic. This is my mom in the living room of our house at 134 Union St., getting ready to fly to England to visit family.
A photo of my brother Paul in Almonte, in front of our house on Union St. He was 5 years older than me. Not sure what the trophy was for, but I know he was a fullback for the Almonte HS football team. He also played hockey, so it could be a hockey trophy as well. His nickname in HS was “Moose”
Come and visit the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page– what’s there? Cool old photos–and lots of things interesting to read. Also check out The Tales of Carleton Place and The Tales of Almonte
