One of my favourite photos of Bridge Street that I found one day in the archives of the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum

Norma Ford Parking both sides of street. If you could drive Bridge Street in Carleton Place, you could drive anywhere and I mean anywhere. I also remember the stunt driving back in the day with our Police Chief Herbie Cornell, the best. He was so patient with the younger crowd, had compassion until you stepped over the line. Those were good days, if only the kids had these memories, the world would be a much better place.

Brian Crawford Not only park on both sides of the street but the cars were huge…
