Museum seeks photos of old homes

I am a sucker for old houses and I love before and after photos of them, which is why the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum’s upcoming exhibit piqued my interest. The museum, located southwest of Ottawa, Ontario, has put out a call for old photos of local homes.

Here is what they wrote: “The Museum, together with the Municipal Heritage Committee, is putting together our Then and Now display for the Carleton Place Spring Home Show. It will feature vintage photos of local homes, together with current photographs. If you have an older photo of YOUR home, consider sending us a copy and we will include it in our display!”

Contact info for the museum is available on their website.

This red brick home is located at 24 Lake Avenue West in Carleton Place, Ontario. It was built in 1895 for the Dunham family and is now Rose's Custom Sewing. Photo owned by Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum.
