The Unfortunate Man makes his way to Toronto

Harrisburg Train Station 
I had to go back and review my notes. I have been incorrect in my recent tellings.

Here is how William made his way to Toronto where he was going to meet his son Willie at Palmer House (King and Young streets)

Mr Harvey leaves Guelph on foot about 11:30 am and walks to Hespeler. Hires a horse and wagon and goes to Galt. Switches rigs and goes to Harrisburg. Sends a telegram to Willie and boards the 6:20 pm train to Toronto.

Harrisburg is N. of Brantford and W. of Hamilton.

This picture is the Harrisburg Train Station about the correct time period 1885-1905.
