Flashback Saturday

picture dated 1956

Wayne Waite submits this picture dated 1956. Wayne lived on North Front Street where Northway Restaurant currently sits.

He told me that his friends, left to right Eugene Flunder, Rodney Bigby, Allan Martin, John Oliver, and Wayne Waite often played hockey on the ice situated at Jackson Woods. He went on to tell me that Jimmy Jackson who wasn't fond of kids, or at least on his property would spread manure on the ice to discourage the kids from playing there.


Jackson Woods which currently makes up the subdivision of homes on Heartwood Drive, Finch, Hawthorn, Magnolia, Hazel and Sandpiper Crt was originally owned by farmer James Wellington Jackson. This large piece of property sits between College and Tracey Streets across from the former Quinte Secondary School. I remember myself as a small boy during the 1970's riding my bike through the various trails of this vast property. I understand there were many a bush party that went on deep in the woods :)
