March 1999, a publication was launched for the people of Walkerville,
a 19th century model town founded by Hiram Walker of Canadian
Club whisky fame, that had amalgamated with Windsor in 1935.
The Walkerville Times, a local history-focused paper, quickly
became a must read for Walkerville residents.
to requests for stories about the rest of this region’s
fascinating past – once known as the Border Cities, The
Walkerville Times evolved into The Times Magazine two years later.
compilation of hundreds of stories and over 1,000 photos of Windsor
rich history from the first 46 issues, was released as “Best
of The Times Magazine” in November of 2004. All 3000 copies
were gone in a year, so due to popular demand, we give you “Best
of The Times Magazine 2006” which includes stories and photos
from all 56 issues.
back in time to the rowdy days of rum running, the revolutionary
beginnings of Canada’s auto industry,
spend lazy summer days swimming at Ford Bathing Beach, ride the
steamer Columbia and Ste-Claire to Bob-Lo island, explore ghost
stories and cursed islands, return to the North Pole at Hudson’s,
exit the US with slaves via the Underground Railroad, say goodbye
to those brave boys heading off to war – and so much more!
of The Times Magazine has something for anyone interested in Windsor
and area’s history – and for those who have
lived it! Without a doubt, anyone from the Border Cities who reads
Best of The Times Magazine will recognize a familiar name or face – maybe
even their own!

of The Times, 2006 edition, is an enlarged and updated version

Publishing. All 3,000 copies of the first edition sold out within
took Edwards and Weeks a year to put the first one together from
articles in their magazines, Walkerville Times and later The
Times. The new edition was another six months in the making.”
I can say is thank you for all your hard work in putting this
wonderful history of Windsor together. I have been showing it

I will be buying more of your publications in the future.”
