Thank you to Ken Whytock who sent us help in identifying the object in the picture below. From Ken’s research the object is a ‘valve grinder.’ According to one respondent, ” it’s a valve grinder. There are many different styles of these to lap the valves.”
The DDHS will be hosting a BBQ and Garage Sale on July 1, 2018.

One of our members has found a website to share for anyone who is looking for information on bottle or crockery collecting in Ontario. There is a lot of information on this hobby, so if you are interested in collecting bottle or crockery in Ontario check out the Early Canadian Bottle Works website.
The museum now has a variety of items of depression glass on display donated by local residents and members. Come soon as the display may quickly be replaced in the museum.
Here are 2 of the photos that the museum has had blown-up and are now on display; scenes of Drumbo’s main street from the ‘old days’.
We also have on loan 9 banners showcasing Oxford County communities.
Come down soon to see these displays before they are gone.
