Photographer's Note

"Paris is a town on the Grand River in Ontario, Canada. The town was first settled in 1829 when Hiram Capron bought the land and built a mill on the present townsite. The town of Paris was officially established in 1850.

Many of the early buildings were made with abundant amounts of locally made plaster of Paris, which lead to the town's current name.

The first long distance telephone call was made on August 10, 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell from the family homestead in Brantford, ON, to his assistant located in Paris, ON."

A lovely little town with the exciting Grand River where we went canoing on its white water. Thrilling.
