What does this 1910 Apple 🍎 Display have to do with Newcastle?
This display of apples was the prize winning one at the Agricultural Fall Fair in Toronto. It was dismantled and shipped to the Crystal Palace in London England, re-erected and won the "Empire" medal there. It was dismantled and the barrels and lumber shipped back to Newcastle.
Spring of 1912, the lumber was used to build a "change house" at Bond Head, just east of The Glen on the Lakeshore Rd. It remained a change house until the early 1970s and now bears no resemblance to it's humble beginnings more than a century ago.
