Steve Manders

A very short classical dry stone fence of Celtic design in Cobourg.  There must be a story here.  It is beautifully made, perhaps that is the story.
This wall was built in the spring of 2006 by students of a masonry instructor at Brookside who took one of my indoor workshops in the winter of that same year.

  1. Hey Steve - My name is Travis Doucette. I am a local historian in Barrie, Ontario. I am hoping you can help me find out some information behind a picture I believe you posted of a wooden bridge over train tracks. We have been trying to surface a picture of "Thunder Bridge" in Innisfil which was decommissioned in 1963 but may have existed as an unused structure in the 60's, potentially the 70's. The photo in question is sources from you and looks very much like what the bridge would have looked like but the picture itself seems way too 'new'. Hoping you can help us. The bridge in question is here:

    Please email any details you can share as to where this is and when you took this:
