Memory Lane, Lake Charlotte, NS

July 20, 2019

As I was driving east on Route 7 on my way to New Glasgow I came to the little town of Lake Charlotte where I found this roadside attraction.  It is a retro 1940’s village that takes you back in time.  Most of these buildings were transported here from other parts of the province.  Admission for seniors was only $6 so I ponied up some cash and went in to check it out.  Many of the buildings were open but I only went in a few of them.

And by the way, up here in Canada Esso is still called Esso, not Exxon.

There was also a dining hall which served food but I was there before it opened.
