Chris Edwards and Elaine Weeks- writers, publishers, photographers and digital design gurus- live in the Border Cities region of Windsor-Detroit in the historical 19th century company town still called Walkerville by the locals.
They have co-owned three advertising/marketing agencies and have been involved in the production of numerous traditional and new media projects, thanks in large measure to their adoption of Apple desktop publishing technology in 1985, developed by the mercurial Steve Jobs (we miss ya Steve!).
The couple currently run a traditional/new media hybrid publishing company based in Windsor Ontario, which has produced over 30 titles, including four best-sellers: 500 Ways You Know You're From Windsor, Windsor Then- A Pictorial Guide of Windsor Ontario's Glorious Past, The Best of the Times Magazine (1st and 2nd edition), Postcards From the Past- Windsor and the Border Cities; they have also collaborated on several other titles.
They also once published a community news magazine for 8 years called The Walkerville Times, later renamed The Times Magazine, producing 58 issues before moving to an online blog called Windsor Then Windsor Now.
