  1. Always good to see history being preserved. It seems here in Eastern Canada we just let it rot and decay 😦

  2. Good observation Al. We here in the US also have problems with our government officials not realizing how important history is and its presevation. Perhaps a nationwide petition to the House of Commons might help.

  3. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I have really enjoyed browsing26 your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!…
