Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: Canning at the Harrison's
Exploring photos with the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum.

With the start of the fruit season, many of you might be getting to work on your homemade jams and canning all the fruits of the season. Here is the Harrison family working hard in the 1920s on what looks to be peaches in their baskets. The Harrisons were a prominent family here in NOTL. William H. Harrison was the mayor for eight years and the family ran the hardware store on Queen Street for many years. Families today still have canning parties to help ease the workload so everyone can enjoy the fruits of their labour. Happy peeling and canning to all our fruit fans this summer!
