Default Upper Canada eh!

I had an excursion up by Toronto recently and had this baker / mason bloke take me up to an oven he was installing.....FB of course!

...turned out that this site was once proposed to be the capital of Upper Canada

Two of the buildings were the old post office (brick) and the old trading post (nice stonework) complete with musket slits.

.....just never know what's around that next corner!

Gorgeous building SJ. Good find! The brick/stonework is incredible.

I dare you to come out here with your camera and find something other than rivers, eagles, and trees to shoot. No building older than a 100 years old around here, and most of those have rotted and fallen. Mother Earth reclaims structures very quickly in the wet NW.
