Finding No. 21   Railway Structures Destroyed (Mainly) by Fire

CPR Aylmer Station April 1891

Renfrew Mercury 7 August 1891

The Aylmer Gazette complains that since the C.P.R. station there was burned down in April last, instead of the rumoured fine new station, all that has been done is to erect a small shed that would be a disgrace as a woodshed to any ordinary building,  There is room in it for a station agent and the operator; but nothing to prevent waiting passengers either from down pouring rain or the heat of the sun.
