I was able to make another trip out to All Saints Anglican Church in Granville Centre yesterday. The demolition work is moving forward and I figured that I may as well get some photographs to document the process. The first thing which I noticed when I arrived at the site was that some of the clapboard had started to come off. On closer inspection, I saw that a series of birch bark strips had been nailed in place between the vertical pine boards which were used as the underlay of the church. In the 18th and early 19th centuries, birch bark was used as a form of weather stripping to prevent drafts from blowing into the building. Wanting a memorial of the church, I harvested a few of the pieces of bark which were blowing around for the museum's collection. The rest of the images in this post really speak for themselves.
All for now,
