My Back Pages (cleaning out my files during the Pandemic). 45 years ago Joe Clark came to Peterborough to promote his leadership of the Conservative party to the local media. His wife Maureen McTeer was with him, but would not let me photograph her because she had just broken her arm and didn’t want to be pictured with a cast. As I remember she broke her arm in a wild Ferris Wheel ride at local fair. At the time I was the the editor/photographer for the Lakefield Leader
Joe Clark at the podium. 1974ish presser in Peterborough
One of a kind sweir business card
My Back Pages (cleaning out my attic files during the Pandemic). The day Dief the Chief came to town. Lakefield, Ontario. 45ish years ago. Believe it was a guest appearance by the former Prime Minister at the Lion’s Club luncheon. I remember I was fine $1 for not wearing a tie and swearing. Don’t know who he is talking to. I was the editor/photographer at the Lakefield Leader at the time.
