Stationary from the COMMERCIAL HOTEL, corner of Pitt and 1st Streets, Cornwall.

In 1893 the hotel advertised: This old established House, situated in the midst of the business part of Cornwall, and in proximity to the public offices, (United Counties Building and Jail) offers every attraction to boarders and transient guests.scan0063


This house, which is still standing was known as the Aubin Tourist Home in 1948.  By 1957 its name had been changed to Jules Lodge and Motel.scan0064


The original Lloyd George was constructed around 1888 as the Clifton House, it then became the Hotel Duquette followed by the New Windsor and finally the Lloyd George in 1946.  It was named after co owners Lloyd Gallinger and George Bringloe.scan0065
