Note: Description in the legend; " Fort Henry was originally built during the War of 1812 by the British to defend the St. Lawrence and also to provide a base for British naval parties on Lake Ontario. It was rebuilt in 1832 and restored to it's original state by the Ontario Government in 1937. Many visitors see "Red Coats" that drill in the style of the 1812 British Regulars. They even fire a battery of the original cannon for a bit of realism".
From 1949 to 1989 a series of photographs were created and used to market, advertise and promote tourism in Ontario. The photographs were maintained and indexed in a Photo Library, initially established in the Department of Travel and Publicity in the late 1940s or early 1950s and maintained by its successors. The photographs cover all regions of Ontario. The subject matter includes buildings, historic sites, street scenes, landscapes, recreational activities, events, festivals, and people throughout the province.
The photographs were available on loan to other Ontario ministries and agencies, local governments, chambers of commerce, resorts and other tourism-related businesses. The photos could be used to advertise resorts, historic sites, provincial parks, festivals and events in Ontario. Users were prohibited from using the photos for commercial purposes (e.g. postcards or souvenirs).
A series of photographs were taken at Fort Henry in Kingston, ON, including the one to the left. The artwork used on the cover of the 1952 map was based on a photograph provided by the Department of Travel and Publicity. (Ontario Archives).
