Never Sit on Your Old Photos — Lanark Photos by Pete Kear

I posted this photo by local historian Laurie Yuill who has supplied lots of photos to me. Pete Kear then added some great photos on the Lanark Village Community Group (Canada) that needed to be documented . Thanks Pete.. it takes a village to do this so send your photos in. PM me.. call a museum, post them for the generations ahead of us. Thank you!!

I have added a few more photos of Peter’s to the memory of the Kitten Factory. CLICK Photos of the Lanark Village I Once Knew–Peter Kear
