This mid-Victorian farm house was the site of one of the most important invention of the modern human history. On July 26th, 1874, the young Alexander Graham Bell here grasped the principle on which his most famous invention, the telephone, would work. Recognizing the importance of this event in 1909 the Bell Telephone Memorial Association purchased the property and deeded it to the Brantford Board of Park Management and it was opened to the public in 1910. Now operates as Ontario's oldest historic home museums and a National Historic Site. Queen Elizabeth II dedicated a memorial column at the site in 1997, a picture of the plaque on it is shown in the Workshop. There are also monuments to Bell and his invention in Brantford, pictures of these are in my Flickr gallery.

A very good capture of this impressive and attractive Victorian farmhouse with a very famous former owner. The point of view is well chosen with the curving path leading the viewer toward the front door. A nicely illuminated image with good colours and clarity. Interesting note as well.

This is a well composed shot taken from a good POV. The use of the curving path to lead the eye into the shot works well. The angle of the shot gives the scene a nice sense of depth and direction. The lighting is great as is the color and sharpness.

Excellent presentation of this elegant house and very interesting note about Bell. Nice use the curve of the road in the composition, Beautiful coloujrs and superb sharpness. Bell would be surprised to see our mobiles now.
But I read with great interest your critique of Gert's photo from Poznań. I am surprised that you remember Poznań June. I remember it and also Hungarian revolution in October but rather vague. So I suppose that you are older than me.
Warm regrads MAlgo
