Some years ago, this unusual stone was built into a wall of an old home in Beaconsfield, Quebec. The stone had been found nearby on the property, and then incorporated in the wall during masonry work. Barbara Barclay, the owner of the house in question, would like to know if this stone is the result of human art, or whether it was formed naturally. Please contact QAHN if you have any ideas! Tel: (819) 564-9595 Toll free in Quebec (877) 964-0409 home@QAHN.org.

--September 3, 2015. Need a cab? Pick up the phone and just say “TRenmore-4777”, a Bronx Park Taxi will be at your door. Need the Fire Dept.? Grab the phone (quickly) and say “HEmlock-5323”, and you’ll be talking with the Fire Chief directly. Need new furniture? Stretch-up from your old chesterfield and walk to the phone to say “YOrk-3600” to reach the Fifth Ave. Department Store on Wellington to shop “online”, literally. Unlike today, access to a telephone was a cherished commodity in the past.
