This photograph, from the Guelph Public Library’s archives, shows the north side of Carden Street as it looked more than 60 years ago, with the Church of Our Lady standing watch in the background. Today, parallel parking has been replaced with angle parking, and most of the businesses have turned over. The library is seeking more photos like this one to add to its archives, with a photography contest aiming to uncover “Guelph’s Hidden Past.” Rather than picking up a camera, participants are being asked to comb their attics and old photo albums to find original photos of the Royal City from bygone days. Any number of entries can be submitted. All entries are due at the main library branch by 5 p.m. on April 13. Entry forms can be picked up at any library location. For more information, contact Darcy Hiltz at email@example.com or 519-824-6220, ext. 245.
