Old postcard of Bridge Street bridge
The postcard shows a view of Belleville that, except for the churches and the walls along the Moira looks very different today. I got a shot of probably similar age of a scene that at first glance could have been taking recently. It shows Bridge Street United and St. Thomas Anglican churches. That postcard is undated but was mailed in 1912. The main clue would be the difference in the roof on St. Thomas which is now partially glass after an arson.
