Notes:
Harold Devine Rowley was born at Davidson, Saskatchewan in 1904. He came to Oshawa in 1928 and in 1934 he moved to Whitby. He enlisted in the Second World War and became a lieutenant in the Ontario Regiment (Tank) in France, Belgium and Germany. He was involved in the building of Club Bayview at Whitby in 1946 (Whitby's first night club). This was sold in 1948. He worked as an attendant at Ontario Hospital and retired in 1966. He became a Justice of the peace at Whitby from 1966 to 1989. He was involved in boy scouts and raised collies as a hobby. Mr. Rowley died in Whitby in 1994 and is buried at Union Cemetery, Oshawa.

Marjorie Georgina Ruddy (1908-1980) was a prominent Whitby photographer and the only commercial photographer in Whitby during the 1930s and 1940s. Marjorie was the official photographer for the Whitby Police Department starting in the 1930s and as a result took many photographs of car accidents, fingerprints and crime scenes. (Station Gallery.
