Trackside House

I would like to begin by thanking Pat and Robert, the owners of this house, for allowing me in to photograph this fascinating old house.  They were very understanding and accommodating of my hobby and interests.

Palmyra House

It was a beautiful day and I was beginning my journey back home after a long weekend of checking out what southwestern Ontario had to offer.  A friend on Facebook suggested this location, and I must say that I'm glad he did.

North Truro AFS

History: 

Operations began here in 1951 with the 762d Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron moved in with two WWII-era AN/CPS-3 radars. Its role at this point was as a Ground Control Intercept station, vectoring intercept aircraft toward unidentified targets. In 1955, the AN/FPS-8 radar was added to the base. This system was upgraded to AN/GPS-3 before being removed from service in 1960. In 1956, the primary search radar was the CPS-6B.

Balaclava

History: 

Balaclava was started with the sawmill in 1855 on Constant Creek. By the 1860's, a blacksmith and hotel had joined the permanent residents. The sawdust burner was constructed in 1903 to avoid polluting the river.

In 1936, the mill had to be almost completely rebuilt after a fire.
