This is for those in the Toronto area, or nearby. There is an
interesting lecture series being hosted by Black Creek Pioneer Village
in February. Those for the 4th, 12th and 19th are relevant to "our"
period, and may be of interest to several folk in the hobby. Below are
the details. I would love to attend, but getting from Hamilton to BCP
Village by 7.00pm is a bit of a challenge.
