This has to be the oldest photo
of Nipigon's main street in our archives.

Far left top of Taylor House. nmp534

The following is 1905 further up the street

This is 1905. International Hotel, Revillon Frere Bros ,
 Hudson's Bay Co. are central.

Before 1929. Far right Nipigon Inn on Front Street.
 Still has the old train station for C.P.R. .

This is the first picture after the completion
of the Trans-Canada Highway Bridge over the Nipigon River September , 1937
The Canadian Pacific Railway Bridge on the far side was completed in 1885.
This view overlooks Gapen's Pool.  The far shore still has dock in place.
 The Canadian Northern Railway runs under the two bridges.
