Speaking about butchers… here is a really old pic of downtown Almonte being paved… if you zoom in on the far right side, you will see a sign for “A B Lotan Butcher”
People of Lanark County–Stan and Ellard Sonnenberg-Almonte- butchers– From “Up the Line”

Des H Julian-– Remember the butcher shop.and they worked for Louis Carr.on the main drag in Almonte.

Jane Blanchfield I remember when I was very young going with my grandfather into the store when he would buy meat and always pass it back saying do it again without the fat. Constant joke.

Glenna Kells Remember the store well!!! My mother used to send me there for slab bacon and I had to pick the one that had the most fat on it because the meat was so lean! Great picture and memories … thanks for sharing

Cathy Paterson– Sonnenburg Store across from the high school used to go in for a treat when I went to Comba school
Margaret McNeely My father dealt with Louis Carr all the time for meat for our restaurant. Our dog Chummy use to go to the back of the store that was on the Main Street and they would treat him to a bone.
Susan Elliott Topping Our dog, Rusty, used to sneak out and go to the Butcher Shop across from ADHS and would come home with a huge bone every time! LOL
Linda Nilson-Rogers Such great guys to deal with, Ellard and Stan weren’t real fond of my black Hampshires! LOL didn’t want black hairs to show up on my pork!
