A amber ring
The ring was shipped here form Germany in the 1950s by my grandfather who ran an import store, in Kitchener. He drove to Toronto to get the shipments. He was an immigrant from Germany during the war. Cambridge is the largest German community in Ontario. It was a gift from my grandmother. It was amongst the last shipments my grandfather picked up in the city before he passed away. The shipment came in on the docks, at the bottom of Spadina and University, west of where the current ferry docks are located. This ring had its origins in Germany but arrived in Toronto to be a memory of my grandfather, and a little piece of Toronto, brought to her hometown in Cambridge. I am very interested in finding the source of the ring and little more of its history.
