Old, New, Doors Open
#mhbp was walking down Duke Street West towards down town Kitchener when we saw these two buildings and thought they provided an interesting contrast. The MHBPNA Blog will be radical and call it “old and new”! Or “from felt to pharmaceuticals”?
Click on the photo for a larger size. The motto “Felt for Every Purpose” seems both nostalgic and definitive. In the “olden days” Kitchener was the centre for felt, buttons, rubber and tanning (among other things).
The Rumpel Felt building will be open for Doors Open this year so we should all make a point of visiting. Information about Doors Open Waterloo Region is here.
See you there!
