If I am reading the photo right, the photgrapher was on "The Rock" facing North. You can see the Catholic Church in the top left which would mean that the street that you're looking at in the foreground is Grove Street and the open space between the two-floored building on the left and the white building on the right is where the library sits today. The next street north would be Highway 17 and I believe the flat-faced building is where Hub 17 is right now. There certainly were a lot more trees between the rock and the highway!
Members of the group identified some of the features. Please note that none of these identifications have been verified but we would love to know what you think!

This photo brings back rich memories for me. My parents rented the unpainted house in front of the church on the right (Presbyterian) in 1949 to 1950 from the Ouelette family. We had a chemical toilet. The garage and storage buildings to the left, in front of the Continuation School (originally both an elementary school until 1951 Massey Public School opened), housed Max McNally's hearse and various funeral resources.

I often wondered what happened to you??? Recently I was in touch with Joe Medve. Met Keith Carlson In the NW Territories a long time ago?? 1970mish. He passed away some time ago. I live in Sault Ste. Marie on Queen Street.Please get in touch with me if you can . I remember your dad typing my name on a piece of paper at your house. I was amazed to see me on the BIG SCREEN Yes , Massey Town . Often think of it and always fondly.
