This building on the Black River in the community of Baldwin was a grist mill (a.k.a. the feed mill), now it is a privately owned and not operating. This was the third mill at this site, started operating in 1883, the two previous ones burned down. For a period it was used as a Bed and Breakfast place, but now no commercial use is indicated, just an attractive landmark along the highway between Toronto and Lake Simcoe.

This is a great shot taken from a great POV. The inclusion of the stream in the foreground add depth and balance for the scene. The angle of the shot is nice allowing us to see more than one side of the building. The lighting is fine as is the sharpness and detail.

Nice old building, and this would make an excellent home, somebody is very lucky to live in this peaceful idyllic setting. Very nice capture of this lesser known subject.

This house does me think at the houses of the European people begin the previous century.
I like the architecture and the nice reflections.
A splendid composition and nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
