Simpson Book Collection – History of Westboro– 1927 reprint – 1927 Advertisements –Where was PALM BEACH?

Facsimile of 1927 under original title: “History of Westboro, Ontario.” 82pp., ill., maps, folding ill. Interesting period ads published in 1980-From the Simpson Book Collection-Ed and Shirley’s Simpson –Historic Books — the List

There was an interesting ad about Palm Beach. I found a few newspaper clippings, so hopefully someone will add to it. Highway 15 was first designated as a provincial highway in 1920, although its original route was quite a bit different than the route that we are familiar with today.Highway 15 was extended along the Queensway concurrently with Highway 7 from the Richmond Road Interchange to the Greenbank Road Interchange, where the highway ended at Highway 17. The concurrent route of Highway 7/15 between Carleton Place and Ottawa was discontinued in the early 1970s, when Highway 15 was truncated at Carleton Place.

So where was Palm Beach listed as being in Westboro, on the March Road on Highway 15?

My guess is that “Palm Beach” morphed into the “Ottawa Beach” I went to as a kid. Currently this is the Eastern section of Andrew Haydon Park.

Saturday Night in Lost Ottawa, featuring two pictures of Café L’Hibou on Sussex Street — in 1875 and 1965.
L’Hibou was one of Ottawa most prominent music venues. Folk, blues and local rock. All sorts of famous acts played there.
Architecture students at Carleton are documenting the building, so if you have stories to tell … now is the time!

Ottawa’s Hobby House store is now located on Montreal Road. But here’s a surprise I just came across.
Apparently, in the 1950s, it was located on Sussex Street, right next to the Hughes-Owens instrument store. I did not know that!
And look, they were just getting their models of the Avro CF-100.

November 10, 2018  · For those wondering where the top of the building went, here’s a photo of the fire that was likely responsible (LAC MIKAN 4511673). I had thought this was the big fire at that location Nov 26, 1919, but the fire trucks are clearly too modern. From aerial photos, the top floor-and-a-half was still there in 1945. Since the Hobby House had left that location by 1962, that sets the date range

Author Norman Levine (1923-2008) is just one of the many talented people who grew up in this neighbourhood.  This is an opportunity to share some knowledge of the vibrant history of the area. 

Norman Levine left Lowertown in the 1940s but returned often in his writing. Levine’s experiences of growing up as part of Ottawa’s working class Jewish community form the basis for the walk. Building on his books and short stories, the tour will highlight some of the people and places on the streets east of King Edward Avenue where many Jewish families got their start in Ottawa.click here

So Where Was this Picture Taken? Springside Hall? Jamieson Sisters

So I looked at this photo Saturday and thought that this fence looked familiar. Once upon a time the fence at my home was like this. It looks like there picnic was my the yard as the strip of wild growth is on the Campbell Street side and you can see the Cliff/McCann/ Sweeney home on the corner of Campbell and Lake Ave East.

Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum 1920s (that sidewalk is sunk deep into the earth- some of it was removed for the walkway in the 90s)

Same pictures in the early 1900s and with the Cliff/McCann/ Sweeney home on the corner

I guess we will never know… but it sure looks like it.
