Almonte residents will be interested in this site which contains 18 pages of historical photographs of Almonte. Reader Joan Levesque alerted us to this site http://almonte.com/our-history/historic-photo-archive/. Note the beautiful entrance staircase to the Old Town Hall in the second photo.
Here is a sample of the photographs. The sidewalk up Bay Hill used to be wooden.
You may also take a virtual walking tour of historic Almonte at this website set up by Michael Dunn. http://almonte.clal.ca/
