Riverside Park and River Vintage Postcard
After the successful Ontario Street reprint, this "Riverside and River" postcard pays homage to Stratford, Ontario's beautiful park system that Valentine & Sons captured over a century ago.
This postcard shows the Avon River, facing southeast from c. 1910 with bygone scenery of children swimming, Stratford's burgeoning park system, Knox Presbyterian before the 1913 fire, and the rear of the old post office.

Since 1967 an Stratford's artistic community has showcased art in the old Pump House at 54 Romeo Street. The 137 year old home of Gallery Stratford desperately needs an architecture feasibility study to determine the state of this historic building.
