History can be found everywhere in our community

As a history buff, tonight was a cool experience.


As you may know, members of council sit on various community boards and committees. One of the ones I will be fortunate to sit on for the next year is the Brandon General Museum and Archives committee (BGMA). As a bit of an armchair historian, I couldn’t resist taking a couple of photos inside the former council members desks (as members would often sign them). Tonight I sat at the desk of former councillor and local architect W.H. Shillinglaw. Walter Henderson Shillinglaw was a WW1 veteran serving on city council before spending time overseas. He was responsible for designing many prominent structures across Westman, including locally the Dome Building No.2, as well as the now removed first and eight street bridges. He died in 1957 at the age of 93 and rests at the Brandon Cemetery. He signed the desk a year before leaving to serve in WW1. (Source: MHS.)

W.H. Shillinglaw’s service records (compliments of my crafty research friend Mr. John Ball)

Just a bit of a cool aside I thought would be fun to share. You can check out more about the BGMA on their facebook page or even better, pay them a visit at #19 – 9th Street.

    Hey there! I’ve been following your website
    for some time now and finally got the bravery tto go ahead and gjve
    you a shout out from Humble Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the fantastic work!



    An interesting discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that
    you ought to publish more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject
    but typically folks don’t speak about these subjects.
    To the next! Best wishes!!


    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a
    blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy I came across this in my hunt for something relating to this.


    Howdy! This is my first visit to your blog!
    We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a
    community in the same niche. Your blog provided us beneficial
    information to work on. You have done a marvellous

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?


    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a
    few pics to drive the message home a little
    bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read.
    I will definitely be back.
