Description:
This image is one in a series of postcards from the Reg Near collection. It shows the façade of the Public Library from Church Street facing northeast. The Library was built in 1905, after the town received a $10 000 grant from Andrew Carnegie. To the right of the building there is an artillery piece from the First World War, which was given as a commemoration of St. Marys' contribution to the war. It was a captured German 7.7cm field gun, which was property of the Government of Canada and distributed by the Dominion Archivist, Sir Arthur Doughty. It stood between the Library and Town Hall until the early 1940s, when it was taken down and the metal was repurposed for the war effort.
