Irony


>The day after a massive fire consumed Party Warehouse, Champion Paper Products and Clean Depot on Walker Road, I shot this photo from Big Tony’s Pizza’s parking lot near the corner of Walker and Niagara. I was surprised to still see plumes of smoke drifting from the wreckage.

Where’s the irony? The smoke is visible through the empty lot in front of the yellow building created when the owner of those businesses tore down the historic Seagraves Fire Apparatus Building a few years ago.

About Elaine Weeks

How history was taught in my day: memorize lots of boring dates and facts, watch corny old black & white history films. There was one bright spot, however. Grade 9 history at Walkerville Collegiate with Miss Falls (Georgina) when she taught a section on local history and took us on a field trip to explore some of Windsor's built heritage. Due to a peculiar series of events, celebrating local history became part of my business. My company, (partner is Chris Edwards,) Walkerville Publishing Inc., launched "The Walkerville Times" in 1999, which in due course became "The Times Magazine". Our goal was to make history real. I am a writer, editor, blogger, photographer, mother, wife, sister, activist, traveller, gardener, knitter, masters track & field competitor (when I have time), glass is nearly full person.
