In 1951, The Little Red Shop was moved from the Lake Street side of Hopedale Pond to its present location on Hopedale
    Street.  It had about three inches to spare going across the bridge.  The truck driver was Pete Knight.

    The picture at the top is a favorite of mine, with one section of the shop on Freedom Street, near its destination, and the other
    side waiting its turn, with its reflection in the water.
