Church, Port Arthur, at 11 o’clock Wednesday morning, January 14th 1914, was the big topic of conversation in Fort William and Port Arthur that day. Mr. Vickers is one of the best known men in the two cities.  He is a millionaire, his hospitality is proverbial, and his beautiful home at the corner of Catharine and Ridgeway streets has been the scene of many jolly occasions for his numerous friends.  One of the most likable men, his hospitality is so great that his settling down beside the domestic hearth is regarded almost a calamity by his bachelor associates.  Mr. A.A. Vickers occupies a very prominent place in the business life of Fort William.  He is one of the largest owners of property, both here and in the surrounding country.  He was for a time a member of the Board of Education and has served on other public bodies.  The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Finn, 336 Foley Street, Port Arthur.  For some considerable time she was employed as stenographer by the firm of Vickers & Moffatt, of which Mr. Vickers is the head.  She is a very attractive young lady and her social position as the wife of Mr. A. A. Vickers  will be at the pinnacle aimed at by all the socially ambitious, but achieved by few. The couple left for a honeymoon trip in the east on the morning train - Daily News, Port Arthur, January 14.  Miss Finn was formerly of  Newburgh, Ont., and is well known in this vicinity. - Ed.
