Town of Fanshawe

The Town of Fanshawe 1910 - 1920 - Tells the story of the rapid change that marks the 20th century.

London becomes the regional centre of Southwestern Ontario and the magnet that draws most commercial and industrial development as well as the latest in social entertainment and public improvements. Towns decline in commercial importance but continue to provide support to their rural areas. More than at any point in the past, local communities are directly and profoundly influenced by international events (World War I 1914 - 1918, the Influenza Epidemic 1918; modern inventions), modern inventions (telephone, radio, movies, electricity, rural mail delivery), changing social norms (Prohibition Laws of 1918, Women’s Suffrage 1918), and growing radicalism.
