Sad news, ladies and gentlemen: The Toronto Star Archives is no longer available through the Proquest Archiver. Sad

Information on mentioned resource for The Toronto Star Archives reads the following since today:

This service is no longer available. To access the Toronto Star Archives, please visit https://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/detail.jsp?Entt=RDMEDB0196&R=EDB0196. Please note that you will need a library card. If you have any questions, please contact us at syndicate@torstar.com.

http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/thestar/search.html

Through the years, the Toronto Star Archives exactly through Proqest Archiver has greatly assisted in researching the creative works of Patrick Macnee and other actors of the TA/TNA series.



Now, like the case of Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail, you need a library card to use Toronto Star Archives - there is no more public pay access for everyone to it.

CBC Still Archives keep many rare images with Patrick Macnee.

Two from this collection (through Google Images):

I noticed it a while ago. It's a pity because you could access many photos of young Patrick Macnee from his years in Canda. Now I'm glad I made a few screencaps.

Unfortunately, I have not saved any one photo with Patrick from this archive, Sad strangely enough, but recently I saw that there is a lot from it (maybe even full collection) on Facebook. Wink

Sadly to report, Dandy Forsdyke's Avengers Photobucket art gallery is closed now and there is no Internet archive for it. Sad
It still worked in April.

Current message on Photobucket, where was Dandy Forsdyke's art gallery is following:

Name Error: The domain name does not exist.

http://s1124.beta.photobucket.com/user/dandyforsdyke/library/Avengers



However, there is still the opportunity to enjoy the old creativity of Dandy on the blog Daub & Blot Avengers Art by Internet Archive.
