Parade on Main Street, c.1898

Leading this parade down Main Street are soldiers of the Spanish-American War. The Two-story building at upper left took advantage of the angle that Round Rock Avenue makes with Main Street. A blacksmith shop and later an automobile garage were at this location.

The Crystal Palace

Located in the Fair Grounds on Main Street, Picton, Ont.
This building, built in 1887, is a scaled down version of Joseph Paxton's Crystal Palace built in 1851 for the Great Exhibition in London, England. Built of timber, instead of iron like the original, it hearkens back to the "Days of the Empire". Many copies were constructed following the Great Exhibition but this is possibly the only one to have survived in North America.

11th of the original 13 states
From my friend, Dolores


The "Buckwheat State" is a fascinating atmosphere in which to live or visit. Within the borders of the 17th state are dynamic cities and lands that are fertile and productive. From Amish communities to covered bridges, Ohio abounds with many historical and recreational points of interest for everyone to enjoy. Extending 225 miles from north to south, Ohio's inland location gives the state a continental climate of warm summers and cool winters.
