an antique book written in 1910, which suggests that Oldham, and Higginshaw in particular, had a special affinity with whippet racing. The book ‘Dogs and all about them’, written by Robert Leighton, refers to the former notoriety of the Higginshaw track.

“Probably there is no locality where the pastime has maintained such a firm hold as in and around Oldham, one of the most famous tracks in the world being at Higginshaw,” he wrote. Before adding: “Not infrequently 300 dogs are entered in one handicap.”

"St. Catherines [sic] Ont. 1943
Me and Dad (my husband)
before we were married
on June 23 1945"

Lydia Chwedchuk, ?, Armourer Sergeant ?, ?, Richard Rimmer

St. Catharines, Ontario, 1943

Me [Lydia] and Dad (my husband) before we were married on June 23, 1945

Lynda (Rimmer/Richards) Krause: Her mother and father always went dancing in St. Catharines. They would win the jitterbug contest.

NOTES

[There were a gaggle of downtown hotels in that period. Count ’em —
the Leonard, City, Harding, Esquire, Midtown, Russell, Lincoln, Garden City, New Murray, Welland, Mansion and Queensway -
http://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/2012/04/12/pining-for-the-downtown-hotel-glory-days-of-the-late-1940s ]

The Avondale store on Niagara St. in north St. Catharines, where there was lots of jitterbugging, saw its Novak’s Dine and Dance basement constructed in the late ‘40s or ‘50s and had a terrazzo tile floor.

COUSIN RON ENNS (Of St. Catharines):
Most think that it’s the Atlanta Hotel which was on the shores of Lake Ontario at the end of Geneva Street.
Some think maybe a dance hall that was an addition to a bar. Apparently back in those days women weren’t allowed in bars.
