Happy Anniversary to the forum which is in it's tenth year, many thanks to all that have helped out along the way and to those who have sent in bits and pieces of Beach history over the years. Thanks to those who contribute on a daily basis, weekly or just once in a while, once again thank you.
A big thank you to our other admin (TC) that no one hears much from but is always keeping the place going.:celebrate :hb2:

Good job Scott. It is a big commitment to keep a website going. When not working on my own it's a toss up between you and google where I spend my "extra" time.

Ah but the Beach is one of two of my research interests. The other being The Plains which just happens to run up to The Beach.
I've been thinking about moving my Beach pages from the Saltfleet site to an area just dedicated to the Beach. That way I don't have to keep designating which side of the "boundry" I'm on. Wentworth or Halton. I have my outlet work, some War of 1812 stories, and a host of news articles. I have been gathering information on the people of the Beach. Old arrests, fights, naked bathing, buried bodies, and lots of colour for the Strip.

Didn't we have an old article about naked men doing exercises with "each other"?:p

You may have. What I have is complaints (can't remember now but I think it was Campbell complaining) about men coming to the canal to bath in the early evening. Problem being they were really "bathing" in the nude with ladies still walking around. Went so far as the powers that be in Hamilton had to set times and areas for bathing. Constable had to monitor it. Young men were not complying.

Now I found it and my mistake, they where playing leap frog in the nude:D Check the last article that was sent in by your friend Scott Forsythe of Winnipeg.
