C.P.R. Station Roof at Pakenham Damaged by Fire late April 1900

Almonte Gazette 4 May 1900

The C.P.R. station roof took fire a few days ago from sparks from an engine, and but for the fact that it was noticed by some of the neighbors and water promptly applied there would have been another station to build on the C.P.R. Co's. transcontinental line.
