a cryptic inscription, typical of the Masons
here is the newspaper article regarding the explosion which killed Mr Teale

Killed in a Fireworks Explosion.
HAMILTON, Ont. March 27. A terrific explosion occurred at the factory
of Hand & Company, fireworks manufacturers, late yesterday afternoon.
Walter TEALE, a son-in- law of Professor Hand, and one of the partners
in the concern, was blown to atoms. The explosion was in one of the
largest buildings. Half of the building was blown off in fragments.
Portions of Teale's remains were found all over the grounds, which cover
a large area. One part of the trunk was found fully 100 yards from
where the explosion occurred. The windows in many of the buildings in
the surrounding district were shattered by the force of the explosion.

expo 86

here is the other side of the trailer I posted last week. I didn't like it as much as the other side and as you can see, it was also winter when I took this version but was blocked by vehicles when I went back last week. but since someone mentioned expo 86, I thought I would share it.
