Goderich, Ontario, located on the eastern shore of Lake Huron, is the subject of Book 23 in the Cruising Ontario series of books of photographs of towns and cities in Ontario. The photos show the architecture and design of old buildings, many that are over 100 years old, with some descriptions of the buildings and background information. A written history of the town is included which talks about the beginning of settlement, what it was like as a pioneer, farming practices in Huron County, the invention of bigger and better stoves to keep warm in the homes in the cold winter climate, a history of salt mining, and information about other industries. The August 2011 tornado that tore across the area destroyed many buildings and badly damaged others. Some of the pictures included in this book have met their purpose, saving our history one photo at a time, as some of the buildings no longer exist. Enjoy the visual history of the town.
