Llew Lloyd In the 30s it was said to be the best ball diamond between Toronto and Montreal.The Detroit Tigers placed some of their prospects here.

Here is the old ball park once again…Photo from Scott Langstaff-Photo Found this old photo in my grand mothers photo album. She grew up in Carleton Place. Guessing this is from the 30’s?

Dan Williams Yep the old ball park. I scraped those base lines and lined that field a few times with my dad. I remember going to watch him catch on the Legion ball team and the little ticket window coming in. Also remember watching the odd game from the roof of the stands.

Joann Voyce 3rd from the right, back row looks like Glen Miller but I could be wrong

  1. Intriguing. I am related by marriage to the Langstaffs and my great grandmother was Eliz Wilson. I look an awful lot like the Bessie W shown in the first photo. Wish there was more info but I will search using the name Bessie to see if I can find my ggran using that name.
