Error: I had indicated that my family, John & Mary Baron lived in Trail from 1937 - 1953....It should have been 1937 - 1945

I am presently working on our family's genealogy history. Trail is
a part of that history. My family, John & Mary Baron, my brother
Ronald and I lived in Trail from 1937 to 1953. My Dad, John Baron and my Uncle Mike Baron worked in the Smelter.

I wish to express my appreciation to Sarah Benson for all the help and assistance she has provided to me. I have been looking through the your web pages which have been very helpful.

I visited this interesting part becouse some days ago I knew one the past mayor of Trail. Mr William Profili, who has Italian oringines. He was awarded in Lucca.
I studied I lot about Canada history, geograpy and these photos are important to understand this wonderfull country.
Oh I forgot this summer I visited Vancouver and the near area but I want to come another time to see the magnificent West Kootenays.

WEBSITE ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTE: William "Bill" Profili was, in fact, mayor of Rossland for many years, which is located just up the hill from Trail.

WEBSITE ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTE: The top floor of the Company Store did have apartments for employees of the company. We have no record of a cafeteria on the top floor. The Trail Journal of Local History, Second Issue features a story on the Company Store. Please see our "Store" page.

This is one of my favorite sites. In the past few years I have become very interested in the history of Trail and the West Kootenays, and the Trail Historical society web site is a gold mine of visual history about my home town. Best wishes to see the site accessed by more people each week.
