Exploring Photos with Jim Smith: The commissariat's office
The commissariats office, shown in 1946, was once a golf clubhouse, when there was a golf course on the Common. (Jim Smith/Special)

Located on Veterans Lane in NOTL is a heritage building that once was the commissariat’s office through two world wars. This photo is from 1946. From the 1940s into the 1960s, Teen Town was held here where we danced the night away to our favourite popular tunes. Boys Town, Girls Town and Brownies were also held here. The building had also been the Fort George Golf Club house at a time when the Common was a golf course.
