See Slider below
Several years before the Dundas Street Bridge was built (1970), You had to detour up Front Street to the lower Bridge Street Bridge to cross the river. In the 1950's the old Simpson's Tavern building (later the Wallbridge house) still stood where Cooney Motors currently is. The Simpson's Tavern goes back nearly 200 years when Belleville was known as Myers Creek. Behind the Simpson's Tavern stood Seiberling Tire Service.
