These photos were provided to me about fifteen years ago by Michael Dunn. They provide a fascinating look at life in Almonte over the past hundred and fifty years or so. A lot of the town hasn’t changed much in that time.

      Thanks Dave. The captions for these photos are as provided to me about 15 years ago by John Dunn. I’ll check into this.

    If there are any family connections left in Almonte for the sculptor Robert Tait Mckenzie, I have a photo of a fountain by him. It is titled and signed by the sculptor, who also took the photo, and I would love to get it back to a descendant .
