The link below re-directs to the first installment in a two-part article by this writer about an early 20th-century rail survey in Northern Ontario. Conducted in 1907, the survey’s goal was to map out a route to connect the now-defunct Bruce Mines & Algoma Railway (BM & A) to the transcontinental Canadian Pacific line at point some 125 miles to the north.
The article is currently running in the Sault Star (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario) and can be found at A GOLDEN ROUTE NORTH – PT. I.
A link to the second installment (which runs September 14th) will be shared in a weeks’ time.
