Biographical history

Bill Heselton was born and raised in Moose Jaw. He worked for thirty years as a teacher and school administrator in Moose Jaw. Ann was born in The Hague, Holland and in 1952 her family moved to Moose Jaw. She managed a desktop publishing business. The Heseltons share a passion for history, and particularly collecting railway memorabilia. This led to the publication of a historical account of the electric railway in Moose Jaw, entitled “Not to exceed 10 miles per hour”: The story of the Moose Jaw Electric Railway 1910-1932 and Public Transportation in Moose Jaw to 2003. They have also published a book entitled Windows to the past: historical notes: Moose Jaw Brewing & Malting Co. Ltd. & building at 960 Home Street West, 1906 to 2010.
