It’s Wayback Wednesday: Muskoka River



Welcome to Wayback Wednesday sponsored by Cavalcade Color Lab! Every week, we’ll be sharing a vintage photo and asking our readers to chime in with anything you can recall about the photo, other related memories, or even a funny caption. Have some vintage photos of your own? Send them to [email protected] and we may share them with our readers!

With recent flooding in Huntsville, we’ve shared some aerial photos of the area courtesy of Dan Pinckard (thanks, Dan!). We thought we’d contrast those with a decades-old view of the Muskoka River from above. The swing bridge and town dock are in the upper right of this photo. Can you identify anything else? (Click on the image above to see it full size.) Photo courtesy of the Muskoka Heritage Place collection.

Last week we shared this photo with you:



Some of you correctly guessed that this photo is of the former Traditions shop which was where Boston Pizza is today. We didn’t have the names of the people in the photo, but with your help we believe they are Joan Kennedy and Pat Longpre. Thanks to everyone who chimed in!

    The large buildings that run off the bottom of the picture are the tannery. I think Centre street bridge is now just about the middle of this picture, just above the boat tied to shore.
    I was in this tannery once as a kid. Let me tell you, you ain’t smelled “bad” until you visit the guts of a tannery!!
