Document of the Week. Postmark – Dominionville, Glengarry County, 1904.

scan0025

A letter sent from Dominionville to Alexandria April 8, 1904.  It took a day for it to reach Alexandria.

Domionville is one of those settlements that “could have been” larger.  Settled before Maxville to the north, its growth was cut short when it was decided to locate the railway in Maxville.

This is one of the documents that is being transferred from the collection of the SD & G Historical Society to the Glengarry Archives.
