Almonte  June 7 1918

The solar eclipse on Saturday evening was the centre of attraction of all those astronomical and otherwise Inclined- , It was rather cloudy about the time the eclipse was taking place. However, some of the clouds passed and about 7 o’clock a
fairly good glimpse was obtainable. Then the disc of the sun was about two-thirds covered. The eclipse; was not a total one from a Canadian viewpoint and the nearest Canadian point of totality was at Victoria, B.C.

I have been writing about downtown Carleton Place Bridge Street for months and this is something I really want to do. Come join me in the Domino’s Parking lot- corner Lake Ave and Bridge, Carleton Place at 11 am Saturday September 16 (rain date September 17) for a free walkabout of Bridge Street. It’s history is way more than just stores. This walkabout is FREE BUT I will be carrying a pouch for donations to the Carleton Place Hospital as they have been so good to me. I don’t know if I will ever do another walking tour so come join me on something that has been on my bucket list since I began writing about Bridge Street. It’s always a good time–trust me.
