Central United Cornerstone

A few weeks back, we took a look at Central United Church on Ouellette Avenue.

The photo above comes from a reader Scott, who is the 5th generation at Central United.

Above is a photo taken in 1904 at the laying of the cornerstone of the new (and present) church. A neat snapshot capturing a moment in our city’s past.

Thanks to Scott for sharing it.
