Wm. Barclay lived at 164 Down St. directly behind Edwards’ Grocers. My parents bought the house in 1960 and was in our possession until 1986. The side yard facing the Rlwy station was a full town lot. There were extensive perimeter flower beds of peonies, bearded irises, solomons seal, columbine, orange poppies, lily of the valley and snowball bushes. Somebody loved gardening! There was also a chicken coop at the back of the garage and an extensive vegetable garden at the back of the house. A narrow sidewalk extended from Catharine St. to the house and the story is, it was due to the Mayor living there.

About lindaseccaspina

Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda was a fashion designer, and then owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa on Rideau Street from 1976-1996. She also did clothing for various media and worked on “You Can’t do that on Television”. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off on American media she finally found her calling. She is a weekly columnist for the Sherbrooke Record and documents history every single day and has over 6500 blogs about Lanark County and Ottawa and an enormous weekly readership. Linda has published six books and is in her 4th year as a town councillor for Carleton Place. She believes in community and promoting business owners because she believes she can, so she does.
