Physical Description

Scope and Content
Seven black and white photographs used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published May 29, 1978 with captions:
"The peaceful village of Port Stanley, nestled in the Kettle Creek valley around the mouth of the river and on the shores of Lake Erie, has been a popular spot for over a century. As a recreational area or just a peaceful place to live off the beaten track, Port Stanley offers a unique environment. The variety of architecture as depicted in these pictures, reflects the restful atmosphere of the village. Pictured clockwise from the upper right are, Murray and Marie Taylor standing in front of their home on Valley Street, in Erie Rest. The homes in that area are especially adapted for the steep slope on which they are built." (1a)
"A cottage on Inverarie Heights, complete with a widow's walk is lived in and presently being restored by Gary Brown and his family." (1b)
"The summer home of the Kernohans is complete with classic style pillars on the front verandah." (1c)
"The Mill is what Teskey Smith calls the home he rebuilt high on the cliffs in the west end. Originally a grist mill from Selbourne, it is now used as a summer cottage for his children and grandchildren." (1d)
"Mr. Smith plays with Kelly in front of the Cabin, located next to the Mill. In 1962, he purchased the log cabin and reassembled it as a sleeping cabin on his property. He gradually built onto it so that it is now the main home he occupies with his wife Christine. " (1e)
"Below, a cat sleeps under a bench which adds to the decor of the outside entrance of an art studio in part of an old fashioned fish shanty." (1f)
"And finally, the impressive gingerbread art stands out on this century old house on Main Street." (1g)

"A truly marvelous view to the east along the Lake Erie shoreline can be had from the Heights in front of Colonel Thomas Talbot's old home. The camera eye is looking easterly across the mouth of the Port Talbot harbor where the mill and other buildings were destroyed by raiding parties during the war of 1812. The Estates cover 672 acres, principally rolling land and wooded areas, but there is a splendid harbor at the mouth of Talbot Creek, where, it is said, commercial fishing may be resumed. Brock's army camped at this beach, August 10, 1812, on its way to capture Detroit and Hull's army." (1b)
"From a point high on a bluff north of the original Talbot road and at the easterly end of the Talbot Estate, one can look up towards the mouth of Talbot Creek, past the harbor mouth of Port Talbot and out over the quiet waters of Lake Erie, a stillness often broken by raiding parties from American shores which harassed the early settlers under Col. Talbot." (1c)
