On the Road Through Cannington Ontario

Cannington Ontario is a special place for me. My branch of Highland Scots Smiths settled here in the 1820s and my great grandfather owned the town feed store where the Cannington mural is today, sadly the building burned down back in the 1990s.

This is real small town Ontario, not cottage country hamlet or a little tourist town like Elora. Canadian author Timothy Findley had a country place near town. You blink and you probably miss Cannington. What I need to figure out is where my great granddad lived, sadly, again, I have very little information but I'm tracking down someone from the local historical society, stay tuned.

I shot Tri-X 400 and it handles the bright morning sun well and I made a good call taking my Olympus OM-2n's with me this time.

Camera: Olympus OM-2n, Zuiko MC 50 f1.8 lens.
Film: Kodak Tri-X 400, Xtol 1+1.
