Remember when:

During the war nylon was in great demand for parachutes etc. As a result girls painted lines down the back of their legs to give the impression they were wearing nylons.

"Rosie The Riveter" appeared on war posters.

Cliffe Toll, a longtime employee of Graydon King Motors, decided to move on to Peterborough and opened "Cliffe Toll Automotive Supply". The business turned out to be a huge success.

"Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Good-bye" was one of the most popular world war two songs.

Practically all movies could be categorized as "family entertainment". A far cry from to-day's movie trash!

The Wartime Prices & Trade Board kept a watchful eye on pricing & illegal trading. A gentleman by the name of Bert Wilson was the watchful eye in Victoria & Haliburton counties.
