Claybelt Tapestry Vol 3

Claybelt Tapestry
Weaving The Past
Vol 3

This book is a collection of little-known or forgotten happenings, endeavours and businesses in the early South Temiskaming District. Many businesses or institutions are no longer with us, and so documenting their existence provides a unique view into the area's history.

Knowledge of many of these little-known or forgotten happenings, endeavours and businesses in the early South Temiskaming District is now only remembered by a ever-decreasing number of seniors. The files of the Temiskaming Speaker were invaluable in chronicling some of these activities.

No attempt was made to re-write some stories. The Fire of 1922 is covered extensively in the book The Great Fire of 1922 [ISBN: 0-88954-413-1]. Northern Telephone's history is covered in Northern Calling [ISBN: 0-09699418-0-3]. The T&NO Railway has been documented in various, more-extensive histories such as: The Northern Connection: Ontario Northland Since 1902 [ISBN 0-921801-83-1]; and A Century of Travel On The Ontario Northland Railway [ISBN 0-9730521-1-2].

The Museum has shared what we know so that many of these stories are not totally forgotten. Any corrections or additional information can be sent to the Museum, where we can keep the documentation together, preserving our past as accurately as we can.
