CARLETON PLACE Ontario 1912 Lanark County. River & J.Calvers & Son Mill

I found this on Ebay (again no relation to it) and if you click on the link above it will take you to the auction and you can use their ‘magnifying glass’ and blow up the picture in sections. See the Hawthorne Mill in the distance on the left and J. Calvers & Son Mill. In the distant right you can see what is now Centennial Park with the Abner Nichols Sawmill (opened in 1900) and notice how few trees there are after that in the distance where the nature walk is in Centennial Park. You can also see homes on High Street.
