situated at the scenic north shore of Lake Erie, Elgin County used to be domestic to over forty vanished groups - jam-packed with steam trains, ghosts, one-room schoolhouses, rowdy taverns, warfare of 1812 skirmishes and vibrant characters, like Thomas Talbot. Jennifer Grainger chronicles the increase and fall of Elgin’s crossroad hamlets, lakeports and rail depots with modern photographs, archival photographs, and postmarks that remind us of the pioneers.
