Harold Carruthers

London & Middlesex Branch invites you to join us on Saturday, April 2, 2022, at 10 a.m. for a Zoom presentation with a speaker representing the Glencoe Historical Society

 
“A Step Back in Time: Images of Glencoe & District, 1880s-1950s”

Harold Carruthers, Area Historian and a founding member of the Glencoe & District Historical Society, will be providing a narrated slide presentation about area buildings, events and features of Glencoe and area, which focuses on the timeframe between the 1880’s and the1950’s. Harold brings with him a vast knowledge of area heritage, incorporating his own personal photo collection and Archival photos from the Glencoe & District Historical Society.

About the speaker, Harold Carruthers – What first piqued my interest in history was sitting on my Grandmother Carruthers’ knee to study old family picture albums and letters from Scotland. She would patiently explain to me who each person was and what their connection to our family was.  I was likely only about seven at that time, and as a young boy there likely would have been more fun things to be doing, but I have nothing but pleasant memories of those times.

A few of my projects were: Restoration of the Grand Trunk Wabash Station (1978-2001); area postcard/photo collection (1968-present); transcribing area cemetery records (1970-1983); early settlers (1978-2000); preserving original transcripts; heritage sign project; and collecting Peter McArthur books. I have assisted in supplying information for nine books. A very special project was returning the registry records back to Glencoe after an absence from 1991 to 1997, with the assistance of MPP Irene Mathyssen.

The event is free and all are welcome to attend and share this with your friends and family. Registration is required. To register, visit  http://bit.ly/LMOA-Apr2022
