Motivated about the recent historic Aurora’s J. Fleury’s Sons advertisement printed in The Auroran [Week of April 26, 2011, pg 4], I thought I look for patents that were filed by residents or businesses in Aurora. Bingo! I found one that has connection to the Petch House. The invention is the Plow Attachment that was filed with patent office in the United States back in 1893 by John Arthur Petch, of Aurora, Canada.

Plow Attachment, Patent No. 499,577, dated June 13, 1983


Arthur John Petch, of Aurora, in the county of York, Province of Ontario, and Dominion of Canada, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Plow Attachments.
According to the Friends of Petch House website Arthur John Petch (1848-1916) born in the Petch house was a son of Issac and Emma Petch; and was 45 years old when filed patent for his invention.

I am living in Aurora and this is my photo journal blog. A picture says 1000 words - but not always, so I write. You don't have to travel 1000 miles to find a treasure - all I have to do is zoom through my lens and I will find it for you here in Aurora.
