I am a local history buff who lives in the terrific city of Brockville on the north side of the St. Lawrence River between Montreal and Toronto in the Canadian province of Ontario.
I intend this Blog Site to share a lot of historical information which I have been collecting for the last 35 or so years.
I was educated in Scarborough, Ontario and Toronto. I graduated as an Architectural Technologist from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (now Ryerson University) in 1966.
My first career was as an Architectural Technologist/Draftsman in Toronto between 1966 and 1972.
I decided to go into teaching in 1972, and attended the Ontario College of Education in Toronto. I was then qualified to teach Architectural Drafting in the Ontario school system and obtained a position to do this in the town of Prescott, Ontario. I taught all my career at South Grenville District High School in Prescott until my retirement in June 2000.
I have continued to develop one of my main interests and hobbies in Canadian History and specifically, the History of Brockville, since moving to live in Brockville, Ontario in 1972.
Some of the material that I intend to use on this site was originally published in the Brockville newspaper, “The Recorder and Times” under my copyright. In addition I want to use a number of historical photographs that I have collected over the years.
I would love to hear from anyone with similar interests to mine.
