Trip to Canada - Sept 1999

Niagara Falls and The Toronto Ale

In Sept 1999, a contingent from St Albans Morris Men went to Canada to the Toronto Ale. But first we paid a visit to Niagara Falls with the help and companionship of members of Cold Barn Morris of Hamilton, Ontario.

The Toronto Ale

With so many teams at the Ale it's difficult to do it justice photographically. So here are just a few cameos from an excellent weekend of dancing and generally making merry! (Shame I have none of our hosts, Green Fiddle Morris.)
