Up Against the Wall in Port Carling

Port Carling, Ontario – located in the hub of Muskoka features one of Canada’s great roadside attractions. The worlds largest historic photo mosaic spanning 111 x 45 feet.

“The Wall” as locals refer to it is made up of 9028 individual photos of Muskoka’s first 100 years – 1860 to 1960. Each photo was digitally manipulated to show the superimposed¬† S.S. Sagamo steamship circa 1922 which regularly passed through these locks. When you get up close you can see the original log cabins, the bearded homesteaders and the nautical machines of Muskoka’s great historical past.

    That is simply amazing…I’ve never seen that before in my travels around the area. I’m going to have to make a point to see it this year!

    Cheers

    Hey distinguished post, I actually enjoyed it, mainly regarding the second statement that you made. The only thing I have to refer to to you would be viewing the site through the Konquerer browser… for several reason it doesn’t seem to load the web site also the sidebar seems to break – might want to check that out!
