Photographer's Note

This is a view at the boatyard near shore of Lake Ontario in Oakville at the mouth of the Sixteen Mile Creek. In 1827 Oakville was founded by Colonel William Chisholm, after he purchased 1000 acres of Crown land at the mouth of the Sixteen Mile Creek. Chisholm's great dream of building a privately owned harbour for Upper Canada was quickly realized in 1834, when Oakville was declared a Port of Entry into Canada.
