Did you know there was another London, besides the one in England? Well, there is, and it even has a river named The Thames running through it! Where is it? In Ontario, Canada, about 2 hours’ drive south-west of Toronto.
I lived there from 1959 to 1965 and recently went back for a visit. It was beautiful then and still is, now. What I like, especially, is that it has chosen to remain relatively small for a city (under 500,0000). You don’t see any of the crazed new developments like we have here in the Toronto area – row upon row of ugly, narrow, three-story townhouses. Most homes in London are refurbished rather than torn down.

Overall, the trip back to London was enjoyable, but there was one little downside. My old house looked neglected and sad. There were cars in the driveway, so apparently, someone lives there, but the garage door was broken and rusty and the front yard severely overgrown. I didn’t take a photo, preferring to remember how it appeared when I was young.
Have you ever re-visited an old hometown?
Had it changed much, for better or worse?
Looking forward to your comments!
