Bells Corners

Bells Corners is a suburban community in College Ward in the city of Ottawa, Canada. It is located in the former city of Nepean within Ottawa's western Greenbelt; as of the Canada 2016 Census, the community had a population of 9,272. The community owes its existence to its location on the Richmond Road midway between Richmond Landing near Bytown and the military settlement at Richmond, at the junction with the concession road leading west to the Hazeldean neighbourhood in neighbouring Goulbourn Township, it was the junction between Richmond Road and the "base line", the boundary road between concessions on the Ottawa front and those on the Rideau front. Hence, the plural "Corners", it was named after Hugh Bell, who owned a tavern on the site of the present day Bells Corners Public School from 1834 to 1863. Prior to that it was known locally as just "the Corners", but when the first post office opened on 6 August 1851 it had to adopt a formal name and became Bell's Corners. Today it is most spelled without the apostrophe.

In 1832, there were nine taverns along this strip of road. Early stores catered to both local travelers. In 1841 the Carleton County Agricultural Society was formed, it held its annual exhibition in Bells Corners until 1895, when it was moved to Goodwood Park in the Town of Richmond and became the Richmond Fair. In 1850, Bells Corners became part of Carleton County; the Town meeting to elect the first Council under the new system was held at Bells Corners on 7 January 1850. Frederick Bearman, J. P. Chester Chapman, James Spain, John Robertson, J. P. Michael Grady were elected as Councillors; the first Council meeting was held in Bells Corners on 21 January 1850, when Colonel Frederick Bearman was chosen Reeve. By 1852, there were three taverns, three shoe shops, two blacksmiths, two carpentry shops, a new store, a tailor; the Canada Directory for 1857-58 listed the population of Bells Corners at about 70. It listed the following people: By 1866/7 Bells Corners was a post village with a population of 150 in the township of Nepean, county of Carleton, on the Ottawa and Nepean Macadamized road, 10 miles from Ottawa.

The village had a daily mail, two stores, a school and a church, used by the Church of England and Wesleyan Methodists. The early citizens included: Adam Abbott, a general merchant. In 1866, the 43rd Battalion of Infantry was formed in Bells Corners with companies in many of the surrounding communities and absorbed Ottawa's volunteer rifle company. By 1869, Bell's Corners was on the stage line from Town Ottawa to Perth; that directory listed the following individuals: Most of Bells Corners was destroyed by fire in August 1870. The oldest buildings in Bells Corners are the East India Company restaurant and conference centre Hartin's Hotel, built after the fire in 1870 on the site of Robert Malcomson's Tavern; this church used stone from the old Union Church built in 1853 and the only building in Bells Corners to survive the fire of 1870. Some notable residents of the time: George Arnold - postmaster and owner of Arnold's General Store Hugh Bell - tavern owner David Hartin - hotel owner John Foster - farmer, councilman.

Spittle - hotel keeper Stephen H. Waggoner - toll gate keeper C. J. Walker - farmer. John Robertson began a store there, one of his daughters kept it for some time. Kenneth McKaskill held it a time... The post office was closed on 1 February 1963 when it became the Bells Corners substation of the Nepean Post Office. On the north side of Robertson Road between Bells Corners and Hazeldean was the first of several Nepean sandstone quarries from which rock was taken for the exterior of the parliament buildings, Confederation Building, Connaught Building and what is now the Canadian Museum of Nature, it can be seen in many smaller buildings throughout the city. Dick Williams, a Welshman who came to Canada in 1902, opened a small quarry in the Nepean formation on the farm of his father-in-law on lot 3, concession II, Ottawa front; the two began making paving stones in 1912 and in 1916 they were joined by a young Scot, Archie Campbell, a apprenticed quarryman. The quarry became known as Campbell's Quarry.

Contracts were signed with seven different quarries, but the bulk of the stone for the Centre Block and the Peace Tower came from Campbell's Quarry. According to Campbell "Our first order came from Peter Lyall Construction Company for 1,000 tons of sandstone all for the Parliament Buildings; when we got the parliament job there were several hundred men on the job and they just gobbled up the stone. We couldn't get the stone out fast enough... Stone was hauled up to the building site by teams of horses, struggling along poor roads with six ton loads; each team could make but one trip a day." The quarry continued operation under various owners until September 1962, when the National Capital Commission expro

The initial limited release contained 12 tracks in 1999 and was a European release only to begin with, had to be an import for their home country USA, but in 2004 it was reissued by Megaforce Records with three additional tracks, "The Drifter," "I Send Pictures," and "Sink'Em Low" added to the albums song list; the version of "Sink'Em Low" found on the reissue is the demo version of the same track found on Pure Rock Fury, faster and heavier. The track "One Eye Dollar" was re-recorded in 2007 on the album From Beale Street to Oblivion, it was another example of the band releasing demo versions to songs that would become something different, as they did with Impetus, Pitchfork & Lost Needles and Slow Hole to China, the former being a reissue itself, the middle album a compilation of early material as well as unreleased, the latter having its own reissue some years with extra tracks, just like this album did.

It captures the various styles of the band, with a diverse mix of Punk / Heavy roots, through their more Stoner Rocker styles, it adds some Blues Rock to the mix with unaccredited Organ on some tracks and continues with some of their Funk Metal efforts as well.
