Location: Enniskillen, Ontario (260 m)      by: Augustin Werner
Area: Canada      Date: 23-May-2010
Sonntag Nachmittag im Geburtsort des Erfinders der 'Canada Dry' Ginger Ale/Limonade.

Auch im 21. Jahrhundert sieht's hier noch vorwiegend laendlich aus. Das Doerflein Enniskillen liegt ca 75km oestlich Torontos auf der Oakridges Moraine, welche gegen Sueden (links im Bild) sanft Richtung Lake Ontario abfaellt.

Die Landstrasse ist fuer Ontario typisch: Kurven gibt's wenige, bei huegeligen Landschaften koennen sich dann aber schoene Tiefenperspektiven ergeben.

ca 25 Hochformatsaufnahmen mit der Canon G11 im Gegenlicht um 16.00 Uhr nachmittags. Gestitcht mit PTGui & anschliessend bei ein paar Autos etwas gebastelt.
Hoffentlich stoert sich niemand an den Stromkabeln hier.

Fuer wissensdurstige Leser, untenstehend der Wikipedia Eintrag zu Canada Dry:

In 1890, Canadian pharmacist and chemist John J. McLaughlin of Enniskillen, Ontario opened a carbonated water plant in Toronto. In 1904, he created Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale. When McLaughlin began shipping his product to New York in 1919, it became so popular that he opened a plant in Manhattan shortly thereafter. After J.J.'s death, the company was run briefly by Sam. P. D. Saylor and Associates (they bought the business from Sam McLaughlin) and Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Inc. was born.

John J. McLaughlin was the oldest son of Robert McLaughlin, founder of McLaughlin Carriage and McLaughlin Motor Car, located in Oshawa, Ontario. It was the largest such business in the British Empire. His two brothers, Robert Samuel "Colonel Sam" McLaughlin, and George William McLaughlin took control of their father's firm and steered it into the automobile business — a move which resulted in it becoming General Motors Canada in 1916. However, John also enjoyed considerable success in his own business.

In 1907 the drink was appointed to the Royal Household of the Governor General of Canada, seeing the change in the label from a beaver atop a map of Canada to the present Crown and shield.

Canada Dry's popularity as a mixer began during Prohibition, when its flavor helped mask the taste of homemade liquor[citation needed]. In the 1930s, Canada Dry expanded worldwide, and from the 1950s onward, the company introduced a larger number of products. The Chief Chemist from 1940's through 1970's was Franklin M. Gray, from Toronto, Ontario.

Der Blick... 
...durchs "Übersee-Fenster" macht mich immer neugierig!
Die spannende Anordnung der Strasse finde ich gut.
Liebe Grüsse
