"Mickey Dyell and his cousin Bill Wilson Jr. in est. 1939. They are sitting above Grove Street (near First Street) two doors east of the present library. Did the white church (Presbyterian) next to the library use to have a bell tower on top? I see some sort of tower just to the right of my dad’s ear. Also, to the left of my dad looks like the back side of the old Dyell house on Imperial St., and maybe the back of what is now the Legion Hall. The black house (on the right) is now white and sits on First and Grove Street." -Donna Larson
"This does look more like Imperial Street South than Grove Street. The church steeple looks like the Zion Lutheran church. The house below would have been Mrs. Jessey Burnside." -Pauline Roy-Lachance
"The building after the post office was the town hall, and the jail. My great grandfather Narcisse Dorion was the police officer during the Depression, and he used to let people passing through Massey sleep at the jail. Crest hardware is still the hardware store (Home Hardware). The abandoned building (torn down in 2015) to the south of the hardware store was the grocery store. The post office is torn down, and the Dragonfly (Restaurant) is where the town hall used to be." -Bonnie Brash
