Southern Ontario

 

  In the early 1950s the Ontario city of Stratford launched a project to present a summer season of Shakespearean plays that has evolved into one of world's great classical theatre companies.  The town had offered the perfect setting for such a venture for decades.  It was almost as though Stratford's large park along the Avon River was waiting for the theatre to be dropped into its reserved place.  The Stratford Festival rescued the town's faltering economy, but the new developments have not altered the quiet beauty of its parks or changed the genuine friendliness of its people.

Also in this section, a few images from three places on the north shore of Lake Ontario Port Credit and Bronte west of Toronto, and the Scarborough Bluffs to the east and of autumn colours along the Credit River valley north-west of Toronto.

The link to the Pictures File is below the Sample Images.  A Map and a Table of Contents are provided below that.
