Statue in middle of the street


This statue stood in the middle of the street in Chatham, New Brunswick, Canada around the turn of the century.  It was there mainly to water the horses as they went by with their masters.  The building on the extreme left of the picture now houses O'Donaghue's, a popular Irish Pub where I have been known to lift a glass or two...........fun place to be, lots of entertainment and good food.

  5. As you know, if there are two things I really like it is an old photograph and a pub. To combine the two - masterly.

  7. That is cool! I'd never even considered something like that ... horse stations instead of gas stations. Great photo.

    Happy SS,

  8. I suppose it is now long gone. It seems a shame. At least it's preserved in part by this card.

  9. @Sheila, yes it is long gone now, I can only imagine if it were there now, how many would drive into it after being at the other "watering hole", O'Donaghue's!!!!!

  10. Well many a tipsy reveller has been known to end up dunked in the horse trough to sober up, so perhaps it had a dual purpose!
