I grew up in Edmundston, New Brunswick. I have collected a few historical photos as people have posted them on Facebook. Most of the photos are unattributed, which is a shame. I will credit any posted here which are subsequently identified.
Cormier High School was first known as Edmundston High School. It was built early in the 20th century; my father graduated from it, around 1925, as did I, in 1966. It was replaced in 1972 and torn down more than a decade later. This photo was taken before additions at the back, made in the 1950’s; I’m guessing on that date.
Edmundston had a lovely post office with a clock tower, which was replaced around 1960 with….wait for it….a Woolworth’s store. The clock was salvaged and put it in a tower on the opposite corner.
The Edmundston Golf Club was a beautiful building, white outside and light coloured wood (probably pine) on the inside. It was built around the time the club was incorporated, 1931, and hosted the Canadian Amateur Golf Championship in 1956, won by Moe Norman. It was remodelled that same year and burned in 1969.
I had preplanned and scheduled my post for the anniversary of the Halifax explosion of 1917, before the WordPress Photo Challenge for this week was announced. It too could have served for this week’s theme: Gone but Not Forgotten.
