Carlin How Square (1905)

1905 was the year that Albert Einstein published all of his famous works on relativity – and also the year that the title of Prime Minister was created – the band in this photograph appear to be practicing, as there are not many onlookers. Derick Pearson has put these photographs of parades in Carlin How Square in order for us and this is what he says about the one above. ”c1905… notice the white pit chimney in between the houses down the road on the way out of the square to Loftus.  Note also on the front fence of Front street (not the dividing ones), behind the band to the left.” Derek Dobson advises: “I lived in cottage far left for a while till they built a road over it.”

Thanks to Derick Pearson for the update and the image, which is a Richelieu postcard. Also to Derek Dobson for the update.
