McConnell Club memories

St. Marys Journal Argus

Dear Editor:

Enclosed is my cheque for a 12-month subscription.

As I have mentioned before, I look forward to the paper each week, which usually arrives on Wednesday. My cousin, Jack Kelly, who was born in St. Marys too, and lives in Windsor, sees the paper once in a while.

Thank you for publishing the pictures which I sent you, and which turned out so good in the paper (under the heading “The Roaring ’20s — roaring with wind and snow” in the Dec. 18, 2013 edition of the Journal Argus). My Aunt Mae (Teahen) Egan was a lover of taking pictures, and at one time did her own developing!

She was also one of the founding members of the McConnell Club. Also, she was one of the first women to work at the Royal Bank of Canada in St. Marys. She worked as a teller for years, until she married and moved to Windsor. I understood that the First World War needed all the young men for service in the army so, consequently, women had to be hired.

Thanks again for your help in taking care of the pictures.


Blanche Teahen
