Speaker Series Review: Rails Across Ontario

Members of the Oshawa Historical Society, and members of the Oshawa community once again were taken on a cross province journey, led by Ontario Historian Ron Brown.  Brown was October’s guest speaker, and he shared with us his latest book, Rails Across Ontario, highlighting rail stations, buildings, and rail lines from across the province, both current or from days past.


We would like to thank both Ron Brown for the entertaining evening and to all those who were in attendance.
