Memories and pics…back in the day… When I was a child I used to walk to Cliff and Muriel Blacks grocery store on the Townline
They were great people. My brother Jimmy Sweeney used to be a bag boy, pumped gas. I am sure there were a lot of local teens who worked there over the years. Cliff and Muriel also owned a cottage beside the one my dad built on the Mississippi Lake. Great memories! The establisment was taken over by a Mr. Livingston and in later years…a couple of great brothers took it over!
Pic of my Dad’s cottage. I was so proud of his carpentry!
Llew LloydIt looks like the house my Mother’s great friend Miss Cole lived in. I believe it was a double. Mom’s oldest friend, Miss Cole, lived in the small half of that house.
Ray PaquetteAt one time, my Sunday School teacher at the Baptist Church, Mrs Gordon Lancaster lived there with her husband and two boys, Donald and Franklin. That would be in the late 1940s or early 1950s before they moved to Ottawa.
Llew LloydRay Paquette Miss Cole’s part of the house was very small. I seem to remember the Lancasters living in the other part
Jim McKittrickI remember it too Bonnie … a lot of laughs took place there
Ted WalshLancaster’s lived there in the 50’s and 60’s, Franklin went to school with us
Joyce MurrayMiss Cole planted lots of Lilac bushes they took them away when they built the house next door. I lived there 42 yrs ago
Joyce Murray I remember my mother taking me there and Miss Cole giving me a watering can to tend to her flowers while they talked. The water supply was a hand pump in the kitchen. That would have been in early to mid 50s.
James AndersonAs a very young boy in the late fifties and early sixties I played in the arbor and yard there. With Franklin Lancaster. His parents I believe were Gordon and Dora and his brother was Donald.Last visit I remember was taking my baby daughter there in 1967 to show Miss Cole. She was bedridden at the time. Have great memories of talking to her in those years. They were years where neighbors were like family.
Gwen SpencerThis is the first time that I have seen this picture.I had many cups of tea with Maude. Mom used to take sewing lessons with a few of her friends from miss Cole.

Susan CourageTea and vanilla wafers with Miss Cole were a summer ritual of my Mississippi/CP childhood summers. So lovely to see her remembered.
