A Day in Renfrew Ontario - McDougall Museum

Belated Happy Canada Day folks.

I spent my post-Canada Day doing one thing that I enjoy...going to small towns. On Monday 2nd July I went to Renfrew. It is a nice town that looks like a lot of other nice towns. Ther were very few people on the street but these people are extremely friendly and told me of some of the hidden gems of th town, like Ontario's only hanging bridge.

After crossing the bridge, I discovered another gem, the McDougall Mill Museum, Renfrew's local museum. The day just got better and better.

Instrument for texting.

The mannequin on the right has a Styrofoam head, hence the bizarre glow. 
And hence the D.W. Griffith look.

Oh show me the way to the next whiskey bar,
Oh don't ask why, oh don't ask why...

If you come by the museum you can pose with the Queen!

And we complete this entry I can't leave you without my signature motif.

Many thanks to Paula Campbell and Michael Bradley who work at the Renfrew Museum and were an immense help to me. They are knowledgeable, understanding and friendly, a great combination. If you are in Renfrew, drop by the Museum. The McDougall Mill Museum is located on 65 Arthur Avenue, Renfrew, Ontario, K7V 4B1. You can call the museum at (613) 432-2129. And here is the website:

All pictures were shot with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the Fujinon f1.4 35mm lens. Lowest ISO was 1000, highest (most pictures) was 6400 ISO. Amazing camera. Of the 395 shots taken that day, only four had focusing problems.
