I grew up in 19 Lisgar Ave in the 70's. Primed 'baccy 3 years...
There is a Canadian Hambers user-group for antone who hasn't joined yet!
He's from Montreal... could be a judgement call!
Lorne Greene maybe?
A neighbor of Dr Ferrie ??
slowly I turn
Yep right next door. He was my family doc.
I lived on Venison St West, walked the train tracks , under the overhead bridge , past the jigger shack on my way to Maple Lane for Gr 7 and 8
I was quite close to your house when I was on those tracks
Remember the Legion when it would have been across the street from you on Lisgar ?
Bill Hilliker would have been your neighbor
Tillsonburg Dairies ?
Peewee Variety store ?
Just South of Winnipeg in Ste Agathe. Any Winnipeg people know of an old truck wrecker somewhere by Aimes auto wrecking ? Apparently the guy a few 47-53 chevy trucks for parts believe his first name is Richard.
Beautiful Melville, Sask., smack dab in the middle of Riderville!!!
Didn't the Hillikers have a furniture store? Jeez I remember all those places! Buying smokes at the PeeWee when I was kid for my folks and Mojo's for 3 a penny. Catching frogs in the "eddy" at the lake. Times have changed! We used to ride our bikes over the "cliffs" at the PUC and the feed mill. Small World.
Yes that's the way it's spelled.
Just great.... Melville and the Riders have shown up... I'll say that my visits to Tisdale have been most memorable tho.
Easy there, fish..........Melville ain't all that bad!
Sault Ste. Marie, ON
Hub of the Great Lakes, and lake effect snow! 20-30 cm tonight if the front is right...or wrong.
At least the shop is insulated and heated.
What about Stu Hilborn who went to California from Orillia Ontario Canada. Some think he was a furnace repairman since there is a big similarity in Furnace fuel pumps and Hilborn pumps. I read about Stu H in an early Hot Rod mag (1948?)a fellow showed me at Manotick Boat Works a few years ago. I never knew it before. Walter Chryslers family lived in that town to before going to Kanasas. James May wrote a great history on that subject.
Just north of Winterpeg.
Sweet. The Tractor Factor is in full effect.
<--- Transplanted Saskatchewanite. Saskatchewanian? Whatever...
Strathroy Ont. it just won't stop frigin' snowing!
I lived at 19 Hyman Street in the 50's and picked lot's of t'backey in those days to.
Great town to grow up in.
A neighbor of Keith Somers who lived on Tillson Ave
I knew the Wilkinsons and Gibsons
I'm sure both the Wilkinsons are deceased as is Don Gibson
Mrs Gibson still walks every day with her daughter Mary
You weren't too far rom the Campus then
Andy Kesteloot aka the Good Humour man with his bell ringing truck
Bring back some memories ??
I thought I read that he was born in Alberta? Either way, he's a Canadian export.
And for the record I have nothing against Saskatchewan either, that Qu'Appelle Valley is veryyyy nice!
Fishtail, I could be wrong. I am going from memory. It was in a 1948 Hot Rod reprint the little ones and it was 15 years ago probably when the guy showed it to me. I was thinking Fuel engine man Dale Armstrong was the Alberton.
The one that really blew my mind was John Kenneth Gailbreath, the great American economist is actualy from Milton Ontario and graduated from the Agricultural school still there.
I have been watching a Canadian tv show called Trailer Park Boys. Is that show popular up there? Pure genius Those guys are role models.
Was popular. The final season has ended.
You guys all know about the Canadian HAMBers social group?
and my second home
Check this out !.....I took these pictures today from my house in Vancouver !....I could have stayed in Winnipeg and saved $500,000.00 !.....
my back yard looks the exact same, except it's pouring rain now on top of all the snow!
