Last January, there was a comment left on my blog in response to a post I'd done two years before about paintings by Eric R. Dwyer, in Mel's Fish and Chip restaurant here in Woodstock. When the comment was left by Mr. Dwyer's granddaughter Bridget, I did another post appealing to her to contact me so that I could learn more about her grandfather's story.
I did hear from Bridget, and now my husband Geoff, who is a writer, has written a piece about Bridget's grandfather for our local What's on Woodstock magazine.
Bridget sent some old newspaper photos of her grandfather and, as it wasn't possible for everything to be included in Geoff's article, I'm sharing them here. You can view Geoff's story in pdf format by clicking here - it's on pages 10 and 11.
