Below is Brock Street W from a similar vantage point taken in the early 1900’s. At the time this photo was taken the house was owned by Michael O’Neil a local blacksmith. In the next photo you can see his blacksmith shop located just west of his home.

Below is another similar view taken during the Santa Claus Parade in 1961. The two houses in the background where torn down and replaced with the Post Office, Wixan’s Bridge and the parking lot. The billboard is the approximate location of the Lt. Col. Samuel Sharpe memorial.
