These are a selection of pictures I took when I visited the office of the Royal Atronomical Society of Canada, 136 Dupont Street, Toronto, on 2003 October 9.

Always a friendly greeting from Bonnie Bird, our Executive Secretary.

"Let me get back to work! Just look at all those boxes!"

Just some of the boxes.

The new publications.
The "Observers Handbook 2004" just arrived and will be coming your way soon.
"Skyways" is for educators.

Working with Bonnie is part time employee Isaac McGillis (seated).
Visiting today is Ralph Croning from the Winnipeg Centre (standing).

There is a wealth of historical information here, on both the RASC and astronomy.
