McGarry Township Building, about 1953

This was the Township building with the town office in the front part and fire hall on the left side. The OPP office was at the rear with the jail cell down stairs. The top front was the library, and the rear part was the council chambers and was used for court as well.

This photo was taken in 1953 or soon after, as the amblance (a 1953 Pontiac) was new. The fire truck was a 1947 International and the OPP cruiser was a 1952 Dodge.

Thanks to Lloyd & Pat Hart for this photo and description.
