“I remember a one cylinder car with the engine under the seat chugging along Yonge St. in Toronto where I was born,” says Mr. Gregg, “There were lots of horses though.”
Mr. Gregg recalls some experiences in the residences, the dining hall, student labour at college, as well as working on Atkins Horticultural Farm in Leamington, where the first Virginia Pipe tobacco was grown. All this work was done with horse-drawn equipment. He recalls the “rough 100 days” in France in WWI. After the war, he worked with Aladdin Homes Limited and then with Wartime Housing during WWII.
