Free Dishcloths at 26 Bridge Street 1967

1967– Does anyone remember this??

26-28 Bridge Street Carleton

Built circa 1880–

Ms. Dalgattie operated a store at 26 Bridge Street from about 1882 until the 1910s. During Ms. Dalgattie’s ownership of this building, the CP Telegraph was also housed in this building. Some of the people who rented half of the building from Ms. Dalgattie included Dummert’s Bakery, Stevens Grocery, Mrs. Broom rented an apartment, Hastie, and Shepherd. In the 1930s, Sam Wilson operated a second hand store and Mr. White operated a tinsmith shop.

Some of the business owners that worked out of 26 Bridge Street included Fevaeroux’s Bakery in the 1960s, Judy McGlade Financial, Tom’s Bike Repair, and  Dan Cameron/ Danny’s Meat Market until he moved to Bell Street. Ted Hurdis said that his great Aunt Marge Fevaeroux ran a bakery here. They sold mostly Richmond Bakery goods in the store. The last name of Fevaeroux seems to be debated between this and Fevereau.

Also mentioned for this locale was Wilmer Hecks, real estate office of J.M. Quinn and Adeline Valiquette a hairdresser.

Sue Mcconnell– Simon Gold added that the the sign on the building to the left in the second picture is Simon Gold’s. This was his first location in Carleton Place and opened there sometime in 2002 and moved the salon when Milano’s purchased the building 2006-07.

Ray Paquette —Where Milano’s Pizza is was the grocery store of Wilmer Hicks who my family patronized when I was a boy. Charlie Jay operated his shoe repair to the left in the space showing the rental notice. He later moved his operation across the street to the current location of “Good As New”. In 1980, when I returned to Carleton Place, Don Smith ran a barber shop out of the former Jay space. The main commercial space has served many functions: a record shop, a seasonal toy store prior to Christmas and many other commercial endeavors that I have forgotten!

Debbie Roy— In the early 1970’s, the building on the left, used to be Albert Gale Real Estate and Rupert St. Jean was one of their agents.

I also seem to remember a sheet music store there too and hope someone can help me out. Jayne Graham– I think this was a music store that used to be owned by Bill Kerr. I took guitar lessons there.

With regards to Milano’s, there was a music store selling new CD’s when I opened the restaurant. It was owned by a guy named Bruce who used to come in for lunch. Great store and he employed several high school students. As a teenager, I spent all of my allowance on music from Sam the Record Man and others, so I thought Bruce’s store was great. He was in business for 5 years, but he told me he wasn’t making enough profit to stay open – that was his time limit to become viable.

After that, it was a sheet music store. It was also a coffee shop called ‘Sounds Like Coffee’ which was run by Roger Weldon and his girlfriend. They marketed to high school students and allowed smoking in their establishment to attract that segment. Then it was Simon Gold.

Thanks everyone!! Of course now this building is home to Milano Pizza.

Cathy Stanfield– This is the Rebecca Lodge float. My Mom and Aunt were members for years. The ladies either made or had made the outfits they have on. I know because I still have my Mom’s s\dress and bonnet 🙂 She’s on the far left with the black ribbon on her bonnet. Jean Bradford is driving the tractor. The Rebecca Lodge did a lot of volunteer work back in the day and were great supporters of the Marching Saints Drum Corps-Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum
