Join the Toronto Railway Museum and Katie Daubs for a free online lecture about the “The Missing Millionaire”, the Ambrose Small Mystery. Daubs will talk about the stranger-than-fiction characters involved and Toronto’s development as the drama around his disappearance unfolded.
The lecture will bring you back to December 1919 and the “extraordinary unsolved mystery”. At that time, the railway was central to Small’s business, as traveling shows of the era sent all of their actors, props, and scenery by rail. It was expensive for theatre companies, and Daubs will explain how Small used that to his advantage as he built a cross-Ontario network of theatres, connected by rail.
