  • Notes 
    • “One of the things about a town which really makes it appear a friendly community is the presence of some of the old-timers who are regular visitors to the main street. Here in Gravenhurst one of these gentlemen is John Boon. John, who will celebrate his 75th birthday on June 5th can be seen on Muskoka St at nearly any hour of the day. He’s short, has a slight limp, grey hair and mustache and has a facinating voice and a hearty laugh. He was a lumberman and drove the rivers for Mickle Dyment and Son several years ago. Unfortunately John suffers with rheumatism which he attributes to working on the rivers. Often times he would become soaked with water and would continue work just the same. He figures he’s paying for it now, so while he is still able to get around he is leaving Gravenhurst in a few days to spend the remainder of his life with his sister in the Ottawa district. Sorry to see John move on. We’ll miss him.”Gravenhurst Banner May 25, 1950
