Additions have been made since the initial shutdown and the site now covers 1830 -> 1880. It will not proceed further until more playdates data has been filled in for the current range and maps upgraded. Get involved.
A new membership programme is being incorporated. Contributors are those who wish to donate data, don't want to be too involved, but would like to follow certain parts of the system and be advised of updates, etc. Researchers are those who want to be more involved and have access to all the internal benefits of the system. This level requires weekly upkeep.
Public viewers will still have complete access to all regular data. Members just get to see the background processes and on-going research.
Border Location Troupes
This section lists those troupes which present on the American side of the border, but advertise in Ontario to draw Canadian crowds.
Not much of a factor in the early years, it manifested itself as the railway and ferry business began and grew, and increased the mobility of Canadians. Troupes could draw crowds without having to come into Ontario.
