Comment From–Arthur Street The Burgess House and Dangerous Places- Ray Paquette

This house always fascinated me. When I was a lad the Burgess home was owned by a Mr. Feltham (sic) who ran a rag business out of a former hotel on the west side of Moore Street in the area beside Interval house that was torn down in the 1950’s and replaced with a Cities Service gas station.–Ray Paquette

My memory of that lot where Sal’s Place is situated is much earlier when there was a large brick building that was owned by a Mr. Feltham (sic) who ran a “rags and cloth” business. He and his family lived in the large home east of the CPDMH which is currently an apartment block. He drove a large late ’40s or early ’50s Packard.

Behind the main building was a storage shed which we use to climb onto the roof to watch the trains on the track directly behind the lot.Ray Paquette

Dr Howard was also located in the back of that empty property near Wool Growers.

Dr. Howard, who claimed to have been descended from one of the original 13 Barons of England, was a big man, soft spoken, and used to relate to me about his turkey hunting trips in the U.S.A.  He had a law suit with the Montreal Daily Star and lost.  The Star published a pamphlet about him and distributed it to the householders of Carleton Place.

Levines

The store began in 1921, and was owned and operated by Phillip and Leah Levine until 1983. In February 1986 there was a destructive fire but the building was rebuilt to match the original! Here is a photo of the building in circa 1925

The Hair Loft/ E2

You’ve probably seen the front of The Hair Loft and thought they were renovating. No Siree Bob! Someone stole their flowers first, and then they ripped the planter off the wall. What kind of neighbourly spirit is that? This is a small business that is trying to make Bridge Street look beautiful. Offer a lending hand or words of encouragement please. No way these gals deserve this!

What is here now?
