This work and many others will be offered at the 2018 edition of the Heritage Fair, to be held on Saturday Feb. 24, at the Cornwall Square from 9 am to 5 pm.  Only available at the SD & G Historical Society’s table.

Here is a rare copy.  The many historic sites such as Inverarden Museum, listed in this book, may no longer be open making it an ideal purchase for anyone who wants to see what we have lost due to Government negligence, lack of public support and general inertia.

Along with listing former historic sites, the book talks about the Lost Villages, the St. Lawrence Seaway, the McIntosh Apple, the arrival of the Holstein Cow to Eastern Ontario, Glengarry County, the fur trade Chesterville and SD & G’s hinterland.

Only one copy:  was $15, now $5.

Now $10.

This rare postcard would cost as much as $20 on ebay, it will be available for $5.

Note the Royal Bank on the left hand side.

This first day cover celebrating the official opening of the Seaway and Royal Visit will be offered for $1.

This cover with the 1984 Loyalist stamp and the Cornwall Bicentennial logo will be offered for $1.

What local library could be considered complete without this volume?  At this year’s Heritage Fair for a mere $5.  Really you owe it to yourself.

Please note for most of these books, stamp covers and postcards we only have one copy, so first come first served.

Also we only take cash, or cheques – not credit or debit – we are still struggling to enter the 20th century!
