June 22, 2012
With the former Labour Hall on your right, walk along King St. E. to Scott St. and turn left.
This is the longest leg of the tour, about half a kilometre. However, on this walk you will be retracing the steps of Marion Nuxoll on her wedding day. Shortly after arriving in Kitchener, Marion moved with her parents to 99 Scott St. From here, on May 29, 1943, she walked to St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church to be married.
Continue walking along Scott St. to Duke St. E. Turn left and walk northwest. Continue to Queen St. N. On your left, at the southeast corner is the Vogelsang Green, named after the city’s first button maker, Emil Vogelsang. Across Queen St. N, on the southwest corner, is the former home for the Waterloo Region Record. The newspaper moved to this location from King St. in 1929 where it remained until the 1970s, when it moved to Fairway Rd. S. The newspaper returned to the city core in 2005, locating in the Market Square building.
Continue walking northwest to the corner of Duke St. W. and Young St., where you will find the marker for the next stop on the southwest corner.
