HWY 106 #1 - © Cameron Bevers

Above - In 1943, a small stone monument was erected north of Port Hope in the hamlet of Welcome, as a memorial to Harry Martyn, the first patrolman on Ontario's Highways. The pink granite boulder was engraved with the Department of Highways shield, and a special tribute to Harry Martyn. The Department of Highways placed this monument on the southeast corner of the Hwy 2 and Hwy 106 (Now County Road 74) intersection in Welcome. I would like to take this opportunity to extend special thanks to Larry Paradis for first informing me of the existence of this interesting historic monument. See an Enlarged Photo here.
