39 Then and Now photos of our home towns of Fort William & Port Arthur ... now Thunder Bay, Ontario

This is the largest group of photos loaded into one post on HR&J.  These are mostly "Then and Now" posts that I had loaded onto my facebook page in the past number of months. They will include captions only.....and if you want full screen size shots.  
Click on each small or large photo group to enlarge then return.  ENJOY 
Thank you also to all our followers here on HR&J and also my facebook page.  I hope you have enjoyed reading all the posts.
Don't worry...all you gearheads...many more recently found racing and car related posts are to follow...but you must be patient...as I write this, I'm also working on a new hot rod project.  More to come on that as well.

Nice to see that TBay hasn't torn down all relics from the past
