Biographical history

Lloyd Shales was a hobby shop owner, diver, and filmographer based in Kingston, Ontario. Lloyd was born in Toronto in 1932, the only son of Helen Carson (Shales) and Carl Shales. The family moved to Kingston during the war years where Lloyd became well known as the owner of "the hobby shop", Lloyd Shales Hobby Supplies, for many years located on Division Street at the top of Queen Street. Lloyd was also an avid diver, and registered as the 110th intructor with the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI). Part of his hobby shop would be devoted to scuba equipment and tank refills. Lloyd was also a skilled filmographer, and regularly supplied footage to CKWS TV. Lloyd passed away in Kingston in 2022.
