We will be tweeting On this Day in History (OTDH) excerpts from Henry Findlay’s Diary. A copy of which is on display at the Fairbanks Centre.

From his journal, it is clear that not only was he lock-keeper, but he was also inclined plane operator, maintenance foreman, toll collector and clerk/administrator.
