Old time station, now long gone.  Claremont is but an unincorporated region of the municipality of Durham. The village has roughly 1200 people. There is not much there. The general store burned down in 2009.
The Ontario & Quebec RR came thru in 1884. This was just another "paper road" part of the CPR. The station, built back then, survived until a couple of months after this photo, when it was torn down due to high costs of heating and upkeep. CP was doing a real demo of stations along the line back then.
Large drafty building. Note the oil tank. The Globe and Mail newspaper box, probably selling papers at 15c ea then, is on the honour system. And the "train times" board lists the arrival times of the CP Dayliners, which ran until the big VIA cuts of 1990.
The station was on Track Street, south side off old Brock Road.  Nary a trace of it now. After all, it has been 43 years.
