Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly!The Hymn challenge at Triple the Scraps is every two weeks. A great deal of my childhood was spent at my Dad’s left hand, as he played the piano and we sang these wondrous hymns. I am using this challenge to finally get some pictures out of the box.
5488 Main Street Osgoode ON KOA2WO used to be the store at the Railway crossing on main street.
James Veitch operated the first blacksmith shop from this location. He sold the property to Geo. Craig who built a general store. Fire destroyed the building in 1926 (on Christmas Eve) and it was rebuilt using Boyd blocks.
My Dad, David William Robb helped build this store as he was working for Boyd’s. He laid the stone with the date.
A feed store and gristmill also operated from this lot. Uncle Andy worked at the feed mill for many years.
It was sold to H&B who operated the Foodliner from 1983 to 1989.
Christopher, Robin and Daniel began their working days there with Ricky B and the gang.
My aunts and uncles had some very desperate times the first years in Osgoode. They moved from Scotland after the war. One cold winter night Grandma Robb, Jessie Florence Robb had her husband David Robb get out his fiddle. They kept warm, Scottish Country Dancing.
