The late 1800’s left a lasting impression in the Thousand Islands. Many cottages and their outbuildings have the characteristics of Folk Victorian architecture which includes steep roofs, spindled porches and an attention to texture variations and creative decoration. Unfortunately many of the original examples of this era are disappearing. The elements and time have taken their toll and the cost of maintenance and replacement have been a deterrent to owners to keep the buildings looking original.
This quaint little boathouse is located on Ash Island near Ivy Lea, Ontario close to an area that was once called Fiddlers Elbow.
Reproduced by giclee printing, from a watercolor painting done in 1987.
