Whitby in 2003

NOTE: This is a DRAFT so there will be many changes
First of all, I would like to thank Bob and Patti Duncan for helping me around Whitby, Fireco, Jonben, Willabet and Coal City. Their support made this trip possible and certainly more enjoyable. If you want to know about the history of Whitby please see the link to the main Whitby page at the bottom or click here.

So, I get in a car, drive a total of 850 miles and tour Whitby with Bob Duncan as my guide. I think the hard part of any trip to a place you remember fondly is acknowledging that time, people, greed, neglect and apathy change things. Whitby has radically changed and much of it is being reclaimed by nature. BUT, it is not all gone and its not all bad. This series of pages will be dedicated to what is left of Whitby and I hope it demonstrates why it is so vital to recall and WRITE DOWN the memories you do have.

The good news is that you can still tell Whitby was a coal mining town. The bad news is it takes a while and some footwork to see that. Both myself and Bob Duncan have guessed that in about 10 to 15 years the houses and things you see here will disappear.
