Two Photos of Lancaster Village Ontario Main Street

Glengarry County, South Glengarry twp

  1. Pre 1914 from a postcard

  2. 1999, see below

Lancaster

This is a view taken from immediate north of the railway tracks which goes across the bottom of the photo and you are looking south. It is from a postcard, which is dated Aug 1914. The actual photo, a winter scene, represents, I believe how Lancaster main street looked a few years previous, maybe even before the first fire in 1908.
The hydro line goes down the left side and the telephone down the right side.
The building on the right was circa mid 1950's and before a grocery store operated by the Bergerons. This is where Marioburgers Restaurant now stands.
The 2nd building on the right is where the present Bergerons Hotel now stands.
On the left the 1st building could be McRaes Hall, the spot which is today where Pat St. Pierre's garage, Shell Station is located.

Can any viewer better identify any of the buildings shown in this photo? If so kindly let us know, contact =
