Images of Burlington

Early view. Brant Street has changed dramatically since this photograph of lower Brant Street was taken in the early part of the 20th Century.

The photographer was standing at the intersection of Brant and what is now Lakeshore Road shooting north past the Royal Bank building up just beyond Pine Street.

As well as the early car off at left centre, there is a horse and buggy in the distance, and instead of parking meters, there are fancy hitching posts all along the street.

Images of Burlington will be available in local bookstores and from our website on Oct. 29.
