Default Autotrac--Taco Farm Year Book 1942--"missing pages"

I have the Taco booklet shown in the thread below and am in the process of scanning it. The booklet is very fragile and in the past someone placed a hot sad iron on the back cover and burned the back few pages and left a burn mark into the previous pages. The booklet contains several information pages with photos of their Autotrac conversion kit along with other farm related equipment of the time sold by Otaco Limited. My question is if someone has the same booklet would it be possible to have a scan of the last few pages that I am missing. I would sure like to make my scanned file complete.

Thank you in advance
Renee

Renee,
The closest I have is 1945 - same format but different pictures.
Try the University of Guelph library/archives or Simcoe County Museum at Minesing near Barrie.
Good luck,
G.

Thanks for your reply and steering me in the right direction. The next time I am down highway 26 I will make a point of stopping into the Simcoe County Archives and Museum and the next trip to Rama will include a stop at the Orillia library. Between the two I should be able to find and copy the missing pages.
I have finished scanning my book and was wondering if there is any interest with this boards readers wanting to view the scans. If there is I could upload the pages into a program so that you can all have a look. Let me know.

Renee

Renee?
Be careful stopping at Rama - you may not have any money left to get home. Though I hear they feed you well, pretty cheap!
All the best for the Holidays!
