Robert Lansdale has shared a 1929 photo from Long Branch, Ontario
Robert Lansdale has shared a captivating historical photo from a mural at a TD Bank at the East Mall in Etobicoke.
It may be the case (and I could be wrong) that the background of the 1929 photo may be equivalent to the eastern triangle corner of the Dominion parking lot which is depicted at a subsequent post.
I prefer to proceed with care, before I say anything about any matter.
As is noted, by way of example, at the same subsequent post, the misinformation that the Colonel Smith log cabin was bulldozed in 1952 stands in strong contrast to the evidence – from solid, verifiable sources – that it was demolished in 1955.
I mention this because, of all of the things I’ve learned about writing over the past half-century and more, the first thing that comes to mind, whenever I seek to say anything about anything, is: “What is the evidence, on which I base this statement?”
If a person says the Smith cabin was demolished in 1952, I would want to know: “What is the evidence?”
If the answer is: “Well, I read it on the internet,” or, “I read it in a book in the library,” then what the person is saying is that they accept much of whatever they are told, without reflection and without further thought, regarding topics such as local history.
