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!

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
