Thank you to Maurice Gomme for spearheading this incredible project and for seeing it through to it’s completion.
Why are street names important? Without them, identifying locations would be extremely difficult. Just imagine trying to tell someone where you live if our streets had no names. But in addition to their functional value the origin of street names in many cases, also tell us something about our past. Therefore finding out the history behind the names has been the real challenge and the motivation for compiling this book.
This project includes streetnames from: St. Catharines, Grantham, Merriton and Port Dalhousie.
