Algonquin Park Gate

Motorists entered Algonquin Park through elaborate stone gates designed to evoke the rustic look of the rocky wilderness just beyond them. Note the British Union flag flying from the pole just outside of the gatehouse.

Kirkfield Lodge

For many years, the Kirkfield Lodge provided travellers with comfortable accommodations in a picturesque setting. Motorists, such as the owner of the 1930s-vintage car, would have passed through what appears to be a set of brick or stone gates to gain entrance to this resort.

Locomotives, Kirkfield

These two saddle-tank steam locomotives were used by the Kirkfield Crushed Stone Quarry to move stone from the quarry proper to sidings where it would be loaded on to trains bound for Toronto. There, it would be crushed into gravel and for use in construction. A small fleet of these narrow-gauge locomotives operated in the quarry from 1908 through its closure over half a century later. Note the specially-designed railcar on the left used to move quarried stone.
