Original Memorial Gardens

Thanks to Frank Corbeil for sharing his North Bay Nugget clippings from the Memorial Gardens construction.

 

With the new-look Memorial Gardens set to open on Friday, long time city employee Frank Corbeil stopped by our studios with his collection of North Bay Nugget clippings involving the construction and opening of what was billed as the “Modern North Bay Memorial Gardens” in November 1955.  He kindly allowed us to share some of his vast collection with you.
