In 1891, the Gooderham family wanted local residents to recognize their success and the success of their distillery business, so they commissioned the family architect, David Roberts, to build them a grander office space. At a cost of $18,000, an unusual Gothic Romanesque structure was built at the intersection of Front, Wellington, and Church Streets on a triangular piece of land.

Remembrance Day

Andy | Saturday, November 11, 2017 | | Best Blogger Tips
November 11th is the day that Canadians commemorate those who died in armed conflicts. The above photo depicts what remains of Canada's Camp-X used as training facility for WWII spies. More than 500 Canadian and American civilians were trained as intelligence specialists by the British Special Operations Executive. Serving on dangerous missions abroad, these secret agents were not legally protected if caught nor were they openly recognized for their courage and sacrifice. The first school of its kind in North America, Camp X was also an advanced top-secret communications relay station until it closed in 1969. The camp's activities helped build intelligence ties between Canada, Great Britain, and the United States, and have inspired spy-fiction writers.
