Shane Wm Edwards I believe he had a metal sign at the front door.
Katie PoirierI lived in this house when I was a small child. We bought the house from a lady named Freda Black. She moved to Blacks corners over 30 years ago. Her one stipulation when she sold my parents the house was that she be able to come back on a certain date as that was the day the house turned 100 ( I would have to ask my parents which day that was)It’s a fantastic house. The current owners are only the 4 th owners of that beautiful century house!!
Phil MacLeanlived there as a kid, my aunt and her then husband fixed it up, loved that house
Karen ClarkMy parents Keith and Freda Black lived in this house from 1958 to 1984.
Julie KirkpatrickKaren Clark I have very clear memories of going to the house with my class to make candles. We were making them in empty milk cartons and used an electric beater to make ‘foamy’ wax for the top layer. I think it may have been Doris Blackburn’s grade 5 class I was in. Kevin was in the class so I’m guessing that was the connection?Every single time I drive by the house , I think of that day with your Mom. She was very patient and kind
John EdwardsKeith and Freda Black were co-sunday school superintendents at St. James Anglican Church. Keith also carried a big shotgun which he effectively used as a Starter in Canoe Club regattas while clenching a pipe between his teeth.
Suzanne Turner–Turner’s were across the road from Blacks
Please send any memories to me.
1956 Carleton PlaceOn January 26, 2019 we had the Carleton Place Winter Carnival and in January of 1956 the Ottawa Citizen reported that the ‘glamourous’ Miss Carole Mcintyre daughter of G. E. McIntyre of Lake Ave West won Miss Eastern Ontario at the Perth Winter Carnival. Some were worried there might be shenanigans afoot as yet another Carleton Place gal Joan Hendry was crowned Miss Eastern Ontario the next year in 1957. In 1960 the Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce, assisted by the Ladies Auxiliary, agreed to sponsor and select the town’s representative for the Eastern Ontario Snow Queen contest to be held in Perth on February 20,1960. It was noted that a Carleton Place girl did not win that year.
