Riassunto: This book features more than a thousand historical photos and over two hundred stories culled from the archives of the "Walkerville Times" and the "Times Magazine". In the long journey from primitive wilderness to Canada's automotive capital, Windsor, Ontario, has had a colorful and tumultuous history. In March 1999, a paper was launched for the people of Walkerville, a nineteenth-century model town founded by Hiram Walker of Canadian Club whisky fame, forced into amalgamation with Windsor in 1935. "The Walkerville Times", a local history - focused paper, quickly became a must read for Walkerville residents. Due to requests for stories about this region's fascinating past, the "Walkerville Times" evolved into the "Times Magazine", a history magazine for the Windsor area, two years later.A compilation of hundreds of stories and over a thousand photos of the Windsor area's rich history from the first forty-six issues of the "Walkerville Times" and the "Times Magazine" was released in book form as Best of the Times Magazine in November 2004. All three thousand copies were gone in a year, so due to popular demand a new edition of "Best of the Times Magazine" is now available. The 2006 volume includes additional stories and photos from the ten issues of the "Times Magazine" produced after the release of the original book.Travel back in time to the rowdy days of rum running and the revolutionary beginnings of Canada's auto industry, spend lazy summer days swimming at Ford Bathing Beach, ride the steamers Columbia and Ste. Claire to Bob-lo island, explore ghost stories and cursed islands, return to the North Pole at Hudson's, exit the United States with slaves via the Underground Railroad, or say goodbye to those brave boys heading off to war. "The Best of the Times Magazine" has something for anyone interested in the Windsor area's history and for those who have lived it.
