Get Those Small Boys Off the Streets!


Clipping from The Windsor Daily Star submitted by George Mock who writes:

This picture was taken two years before the amalgamation of East Windsor with Windsor. I do not know when the curfew ended.

There is no way it would work today. The kids would never hear it because they always have something plugged in their ears.

When Isabel and I were dating [back in the day], her father would put the porch light on at 10 p.m. and I had better get her home.

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.
