An Oct. 5, 2017 Etobicoke Guardian article is entitled: “Local historians preserve Etobicoke’s past for future generations.”

The article is by Cynthia Reason; the photo is by Justin Greaves of Metroland.

The article is beautifully written. It starts with humour, continues with a relative newcomer to local history, and concludes with an amateur historian who’s been at the game for many years.

In future, I will feature brief interviews I did with Denise Harris and Justin Greaves, on the occasion of the Sept. 12, 2017 photo shoot at Montgomery’s Inn, connected with this well-written, informative article about local history in Etobicoke. The interviews asked each of the subjects how they got started in their respective lines of work. That’s a topic that is always of interest to me, as a writer and observer.
