My continuing efforts, at the urging of ‘Nancy’, to accurately document as much of this history as possible.

The above BBC page has more of the Edward George Honey letter than I had in my earlier post. So that is good.

I would love to get my hands on the 7 November 1919 The Times of London with the actual proclamation.

Thank you, Nancy.

Prince Arthur from days gone by.

So I contacted the hotel, viz. Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel and Suites, 17 N. Cumberland St., Thunder Bay, ON P7A 4K8, Direct line: 807.346.5124

Tony Scarcello, the General Manager and Kory Morabito, the Sales Manager helped me out. This morning, Kory sent me the above picture. So now at last we have a good, clear image for posterity. With luck I might get more from Kory. Thank you Tony. Thank you Kory. Nancy will be delighted.

Kory also sent me this great aerial of the James Whalen marina taken by Robert Patterson, the Product Development Coordinator for Wilderness North. You can see The Hotel (as it looks now), in brick red, just to the right of center behind the covered, elevated walkway.
