Another mystery solved about Springside Hall, Lake Ave East in Carleton Place
Hi Linda, I just found out from my dad this weekend that the door in this pic is from the Raeburn carriage house. He used to store his Jaguar there and ended up getting the door with the original hardware. It’s now (since the early 80’s) the main entrance to our cottage. — Donovan Hastie

Susan McCann’s Father burning leaves. Remember those days? You can see Springside Hall with the original fence. When we bought it- it had a white picket fence. Originally, there was concrete pillars with pipes as a fence. The carriage house is in the back and we tore it down in 1988 as it was falling down. You can see the white summer kitchen on the back of the house. That was not there in 1981 when we bought the home. There was just a hole in the ground where it had been, and we built the stone addition and garage where it was. Photo-Susan McCann –( Carriage House is white building in back)

Another winner from Peter Bradley—
Here are some more cheerleaders from about 1958 with a good view of the bleachers in the background. The girls were being distracted by the boys (so whats new?)

Linda Begin I miss that old grandstand, I remember going to St. Mary’s me and three friends got caught smoking behind the grandstands Mr. McNaulty our principle was not happy with us.
Dale Costello Spent many a day in the stands. And under the stands. Carleton Place’s answer to Yankee Stadium.
Ray Paquette—During the 1950s, the ball park was the site of games featuring teams of “barnstorming” American professional baseball players who played local teams. The purpose was to raise money in support of local baseball. One such team, “The House of David” featured two things: all the players sported full beards and the game was played at night under lights atop of standards that were brought to town by the visitors. For baseball fans, playing under the lights was an added draw. It’s hard to believe that night baseball was played in Carleton Place before it was played at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs! It was quite an experience for young boys at the time..
