"Charleswood" Memories

It would take a span of time but eventually age, experience and wisdom would guide us to conclude the years we spent as youth growing up in Charleswood ... were some of the best years of our lives. Traveling life's journey from children to young adults together we shared moments of laughter, tears, joy and sadness ... some of which will fondly return as you gaze upon these photos; for the most part ... they were good times ... and upon reflection we were most fortunate to have been provided the opportunity to grow up in such a place ... and during such times. May your memories be good ones!

Fred Lang - Jack Gardiner 1953 ??
I seem to recollect being advised my Grandfather took this photo with his box camera. Upon studying the background and referring to memory I believe the house door under Bob Musser's arm is the front door of our house which faced Elmhurst Rd. ... behind and to the right of these fellows was his garden and close inspection will show it is flooded ... now, I wonder aloud if this wasn't taken during the 1950 Winnipeg flood ... I was born in 1941 so would have been 9 years old ... Bob Musser and Ted Knight were a few years older than I so their age would have been 11-13 years ... which is the age they appear to be ... ???

Research amongst former Charleswood residents of the 1940 era concludes these two buildings were located on the corner of Elmhurst Rd and Roblin Blvd. The brick building in the foreground was a grocery store/Post Office and operated by Tommy Chester then later by the Bloomer family. Later it was named The Willows and served as a short order restaurant ie hamburgers, pizza, etc. 
The house behind the store was also owned by Tommy Chester who rented it to Bill McKennitt's mother and the family (Marnee, Bill & Sharon) lived there for a number of years.
If you're interested or ever lived in the area, send me an email and I'll provide some further history.
