Fred Brown’s Historical Photos of l&A Jane Foster

F

red Brown (1877-1968) was an amateur photographer who lived on the 7th concession of Ernestown, not far from Wilton. As a young man, he took up photography and rode his bicycle around the back roads of Ernestown, to Yarker, Odessa, Millhaven and other villages. On many of his travels, he carried a large, bulky glass plate camera and took pictures of the villages, schools, churches, the people and the landscape. Some of his images were made into postcards for sale, and many were later used in the Smiling Wilderness published by the County of Lennox & Addington to celebrate Ontario’s Bicentennial in 1984. Over 600 of his plates are held by the Lennox & Addington County Museum and Archives in Napanee. Brown’s carefully preserved glass plates, which have now been scanned by the Archives, provide a unique insight into rural life in early decades of the 20th century.

Poem Dear Deer, Stunned by headlights, you bound away on knobby legs. Each time I am grateful there is no blood shed. The time you glanced off of my right headlight, unhurt into the woods. And the light clicked on though it hadn’t worked in days.
