As Summer begins to fade
we welcome Fall Fairs
and crisp, clear nights
the red and orange glow of leaves on trees
plaid wool jackets and blankets
sitting in a porch glider
drinking hot chocolate
and apple cider

Perfect for the collector of railroad history or for your industrial decor - Antique CN railroad conductors step out of Montreal dating circa 1920-30. Great character and great patina!

We just got in this great vintage surveyors rod. We LOVE the graphic pop it adds to any interior and the nice industrial edge it provides. We understand this is known as a Philadelphia rod.
The two piece telescoping pole would be sighted by the surveyor to obtain the needed measurement. The "target, shown in detail below, slides up or down until it matches the surveyors line of sight.
Here are some vintage images of surveyor rods in use:

There are tons of activities planned at the Sandy Flat Sugar Bush and in the village as well. A craft show at the town hall, an antique show at the public school, a jewellery show at the Masonic Hall, a juried art and photography show at the Heritage Centre, a food fair at the Legion, and more. Plus all the great shops which Warkworth boasts.
