Take the Time Machine, Visit the Rosseau General Store Circa 1874

Located at the northern tip of Lake Rosseau at Hwys # 141 and # 632 you will find the famous Rosseau General Store.
Not only is it a tourist destination its also one of the best places for groceries, hardware and supplies in the area.
Built in 1874 the two-storey white frame building is much the same as it was 100 years ago.
The creaky wooden floors and interior displays are like taking time machine back to another era.

    Hi Ed, finally got back to taking a look … I was wondering how you achieve that ‘halo’ effect around a few of these images, is that HDR too? … It’s interesting to me, cuz when I’m painting I often incorporate the ‘halo’ instinctively around objects in landscapes I like too … Interesting blog, will have to come back LATER … Have a great weekend.

    Hi Ed

    I Love this picture ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you

    My uncle and aunt had cottages just across the little bay when I was little and we would canoe over to visit the shop.. sometimes we’d even swim it ๐Ÿ™‚

    I live in N Wales now (Snowdonia), and its beautiful, but nothing compares to Muskoka, I would love to bring my kids home to TO soon.

    Anyway, in the meantime, can I use the image pls on a website for my new business which will be good to go from Sept? I want the business to reflect the values we grew up with and that good honest, fresh Rosseau General Store wholesome, laid back, good life feeling, if you get what I mean. This picture catches it perfectly ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks again

    Rosseau is in Parry Sound District, not Muskoka!
