The introduction of Robert Moore’s book, “Puslinch At Work” on Saturday, June 23rd was a decided success. Robert Moore, a former Puslinch resident, now retired to British Columbia, had been researching and writing this book for about a year. Under the sponsorship of the Puslinch Historical Society, he presented the book for sale at the Puslinch Library.
This book covers the history of work in the township from the earliest days on record, beginning with the agriculture of the Neutral First Nation, to the mid-1960’s. In particular, it emphasizes small business in Puslinch during the early to mid 20th century, a subject that had not been well-covered previously, with much of the information not documented at all. This makes the book a very valuable addition to the written history of our township. If your family ran a business in Puslinch during 1900-1965, you will be interested. Robert has done an excellent job with a difficult and wide-ranging topic, which led to contact with many, who were children helping in their familiy business during that time.
The crowd, assembled in the Brad Whitcombe Room of the library, listened intently while Robert explained his approach to the book and answered questions. All of the copies, which he had brought with him were sold, with several more requests placed. Due to the demand, Robert will be releasing a second printing. The book sells for $15. and mailing to Ontario will cost $5. Please contact him at [email protected]
