Kirkfield in 1888This thriving village lies in the fertile township of Eldon about 24 miles distant from Lindsay. One morning last week our reporter boarded the morning train for Coboconk, and found Conductor Rundle well known in Port Hope and along the line as a most genial obliging officer, in charge of the train. Engineer Clark and his fireman A. King, hauled the train, while the stalwart muscles of W. Scott and J. Storey saw that brakes were in proper place at proper time.
Cambray, Lorneville, Argyle with its lovely flower garden, Eldon, and Portage Road stations were passed in order, and then “KIRKFIELD” was announced.
