Zoomer1958's Profile Picture

HIT 700 WATCHERS March 9, 2017. Thanks to all!

I'm a tenured professor who teaches American literature, specializing in Edgar Allan Poe, on whom I've written two books.


The Haunted Hermitage
The Reverend George Sheed built the Hermitage in 1830 near Ancaster, Hamilton, Ontario.  The third owner was Otto Ives, who arrived in 1833 with his wife and niece.  Ives hired a coachman named William Black, who fell in love with the niece and asked Ives for her hand in marriage.  Ives refused.  Next morning, Mr. and Mrs. Ives planned a day trip but their coachman was nowhere to be found.  Legend has it that they found Black hanging from the rafters in the nearby barn.

In 1855, the Hermitage was purchased by George Gordon Browne Leith, a wealthy Irish-born Scottish immigrant.  In 1934 the Hermitage was largely destroyed by fire but one of the five Leith children, Eleanor Alma Dick-Lauder, was so devoted to her family's home that she built a small house within its ruins and lived there alone until her death in 1942.
La Salle Park Bridge
Tucked away in the southwest corner of Lake Ontario, in Hamilton, Ontario, is the La Salle Park Bridge.  Maybe we'll come back some day for a sunset shot.  We had nothing but blue sky today, which we finally figured out is NOT best for photography, at least, the kind we would prefer to do.  But after being shut inside for most of a six-month Canadian winter, we were desperate to get out today.
