Corner Brook Then and Now

Things have changed in Corner Brook over the years. The high school, instead of being all alone on the top of the hill, has buildings all around it.

West Street is modernized with paving stones in place of the concrete sidewalks that we strolled up and down all those weekend nights so many years ago.

And we, like any modern city, have walking trails in several areas.

Students now can walk from West Street to the school along a well developed path with the Glynmill Inn Pond open and in full view.

Of course we walked to school that way too, but our paths were forged by running feet in a rush to make the last bell. And any views of the pond were through the trees.

Recently, Coleman's opened Corner Brook's newest modern grocery store. It's a beautiful place...high ceilings, lots of space, located not too far from the one of our most frequented hangouts....

Humber Gardens - the place was like our second home! We got to know its every nook and cranny over the years! Ice skating as kids, hockey, then roller skating every Saturday night. We spent a lot of time there cheering on our team in its battles against Regina and boy did we love those Royals games!

The school, West Street, the stadium - the triangle of existence for us back then. Things are different today as we keep pace with the modern world. However, the old places are just as vivid and alive in our fond memories of "back when...".
