Robert Gallant's Blacksmith Shop, Howlan - Demolished

     On my way to O'Leary the other day, I took the route through Howlan - below is what remains of Robert Gallant's Blacksmith Shop.  Another historic building gone!!
     I guess the old buildings were in too bad of shape to be moved.  Sorry to see this rural landmark gone!
See previous post on this blog dated June 12, 2011...
