Wayback Times still ticking

jay-telferI was delighted to hear an interview this morning on CBC Radio, exploring the topic of Ontario’s 22 active drive-in movie theatres. The expert was a writer for the Wayback Times, an antiques and collectibles newspaper founded by a friend, the late Jay Telfer.

I remember when Jay put out his very first issue … 12 pages, I think it was. He did everything all by himself … it’s written up here.

Jay sold his “baby” before his death in 2009 and I lost track of the Wayback Times. What good news it was, then, that the new owners have kept it going. They’ve even maintained a tribute page to Jay, a remarkable and multi-talented guy who made many friends.
