A real Grimsby Old Timer celebrated his 80th birthday yesterday, in the person of Austin E. House, who first glimpsed the light of day in the Town of Simcoe, County of Norfolk, on December 1st, 1863. At the age of 18, in the year 1881 - 62 years ago - he came to Grimsby and secured employment with the John H. Grout Implement Works, with which firm he remained as a machinist for many years until it ceased operations in the 1900's. He worked at his trade in Toronto, Hamilton, Buffalo and other points until his retirement from active labor about 10 years ago. He enjoys excellent health, has all his faculties and looks forward to many more years of life.
