Fort William Winter Carnival Buttons and one Thunder Bay.....

I just thought it would be interesting to add a photo of my buttons from the various winter carnivals here in Fort William and Port Arthur(Thunder Bay), since the next post is all about the Fort William Winter Carnival of 1949.  Unfortunately the button my dad wore in the picture in the next post has long since been misplaced, but above you will see a larger wooden advertising from the 1963 winter carnival as well as a matching button, one from the Fort William Rendezvous 1951, one from the 1956 Fort William Winter Carnival as well as a functional wooden nickel from the same year.  Finally a button from the Thunder Bay Winter Carnival in 1985.  It would be nice to get a scan or photo of any other carnival buttons from Fort William or Port Arthur.  Please send me photos if you have any.  Thanks, Dave

This is an amazing site! Im so glad somebody is doing it in Tbay!

I scoured over the site for contact info, but it seems that you (Dave) do not want to be contacted or do not use email.
