Searching for the Past

Searching for the Past, a photo by susanvg on Flickr.
There were some photographs in the local newspaper of Casselman from many years ago. We went walking trying to find the modern equivalent. We think this must be the old general store. It is pictured below ( a bad photograph of the newspaper photograph) in 1905.

While additions have been made to the building, the front window shapes (hard to see in this photograph), the  height of the building from the ground and the posts give the building away. The use of the building has certainly changed. I don't think you will see men lining up for the beauty parlour, but maybe at the tattoo parlour. Times change


  1. Time and architecture wait for no man...

  2. What a cool find! Maybe the men are clustered there for the 'beauties' within! :)

  3. There are a few old buildings of this nature in our small town that have been restored....one being the ol train depot.
