Big Boom to Shatter Carleton Place Calm –1964

Big Boom to Shatter Carleton Place Calm –1964




Of course I have a few minor beefs about Howard McNeely’s reign. But then again I have a few beefs about everyone LOL. BUT– the Carleton Place Industrial Commission should have never been abandoned in the town of Carleton Place.

I thank the men and women of that era and— when you see Wally Cook walking around (the last council member alive from the 60s council) thank him for what they did for Carleton Place.

I believe the last sentence is: “In the background is the town’s busy main street” and  “looking over one of Carleton Place’s main attractions– the Mississippi River”.
