On the morning of Tuesday, August 31st, 1965, after westbound freight 401 passed, crews went to work to erase the old wood frame CN Pembroke Ontario station from the planet.  As the entire structure was deemed as scrap, no effort was made to save anything.  The process took only about a hour.  Location is approximate.

  1. Del Rosamond was a member of the Pembroke Fire Department. A number of his photographs are posted on this site. I’m guessing he was on hand for this event and was probably near tears. This is an amazing image of history in the making. It is a sad scene but I’m glad you were able to record it.
