Feature Friday December 31, 2021

A 1980s or earlier view of the community of Beardmore, ON which was established in 1915. It was located at Milepost 20.6/70.3 on the Canadian Northern Railway Nipigon Subdivision and later Canadian National Railways Dorion/Kinghorn Subdivisions.
Originally called Hanning, it name was changed to Beardmore in honour of Walter William Beardmore. Beardmore was the son-in-law of Canadian Northern president William Mackenzie and hailed from a very affluent southern Ontario family.
