It’s Wayback Wednesday: Main Street bridge



Welcome to Wayback Wednesday sponsored by Cavalcade Color Lab!

Huntsville’s Main Street looks a little different today, although some of these buildings are still a recognizable part of the downtown streetscape. What do you notice in this photo? Can you guess what year it was taken? (Photo courtesy of the Muskoka Heritage Place Collection)

Last week we shared this photo with you:


This photo of men diving from the top of the S.S. Iroquois was taken sometime between 1930 and 1948, when the ship was retired. She was moored and neglected at South Portage until she sank in 1949. The present dock is constructed over her hull and if you look closely on a calm-water day, you can see part of her stern beneath the surface.

      No idea but I remember it being a swing bridge when I cottaged here in the 50’s. Interesting, there appears to be a building at the corner of Brunel and Main. Also, there don’t appear to be any cars. Great photo.
