A collection of fascinating stories relating to events in the area of Mississauga "My third book, Fading History- stories of historical interest, touches on a wide range of topics.

There are chapters on great football players, golfers, the once world-renowned 400-bed Workmens Compensation Hospital, a 2000-seat Broadway music theatre under a tent at Dixie Plaza, flying saucers, the manufacturer of the Lancaster bomber .flying saucers ?????? Yes, you read correctly, we actually built and flew an honest to goodness flying saucer right here in Mississauga. Now, many of the old timers will surely remember when A.V.

For the sports minded, I tell the story of the great Toronto Argonaut player Teddy Morris. Just after the war years, Teddy, who lived on the 6th Line, Malton, took the Boatmen to six Grey Cup wins. Another footballer, Port Credits Bobby Cunningham Jr, was a standout player for the Montreal Als in their 1949 Grey Cup win. Bobby later took up golf, a game his father had mastered.. Fine.
