Back and Forth

This volume on John Graves Simcoe, part of 'The Makers of Canada Series' is not particularly unusual, aside from its bookplate.

The bookplate was applied two years after publication, and apparently refers to Howard Ferguson, the Premier of Ontario from 1923 to 1930 who also served as Minister of Education.

What I have not been able to ascertain is what school this book was presented to. Was it a Canadian school, and the book eventually found its way to the U.K. Ministry of Defence? If so, this book has traveled quite a ways to make it back home to Canada.
