Artifact of the Week – de Varennes Pharmacy box, ca. 1930, 10 Montreal Road Cornwall.

page 4610 Montreal Road.  de Varennes’ Pharmacy occupied this location during the 1930s.  This box held soft gelatin capsules.

page 46.1Mrs. James Broderick and her sons built the Maple Leaf Hotel at 10 Montreal Road in the old Cornwall suburb of Gladstone in 1889.  It went out of business due to prohibition by the late 1920s.

page 46.2

The old Hotel underwent many changes and ended its days as Le Village Donut, which occupied the spot from 1982 until 2000.  It was demolished a year later to make way for Dubuc’s post-modernist eye clinic.

These photographs and box are from our new book a Cornwall Scrapbook, featuring more than 350 photographs and images from old Cornwall.  Chapters include Montreal Road and Pitt St., former restaurants, stores, events and industries.

The book will be available from the Museum and the Friends of the Cornwall Public Library for $25 after October 26, 2013.
