North York Historical Society: September Meeting
Members and Friends:
Our September meeting information is below – most unfortunately the current Toronto Public Library What’s On publication (on page 36 History & Genealogy) state that our meeting is from 1 to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, September 20th – this is wrong – please help us spread the word that the meeting is on:
Wednesday, September 20th from 7.30 p.m
The topic is The Early Airfields of Toronto
The speaker is Robert Galway
Location is at the Fairview Public Library
If you have any questions please get back to us asap.
See you Wednesday evening.
In a previous post, I’ve referred to an art exhibit, dealing with local history, which claims that the Long Branch Aerodrome was located at a particular site in Long Branch. I noted that it would be possible that the factual error would be corrected, by the time that a typical visitor to the Preserved Stories website were to visit the art exhibit.
As of Sept. 18, 2017, however, no correction, of the error, has been made.
This brings to mind a situation, endearing in its own way, I would say, regarding local history in South Etobicoke. In some circumstances, where the facts end and urban legend begins is not easy to discern. This is among the delightful features of local history. Erroneous information is free to flourish, when the opportunities arise.
