I've been "under the weather" for a couple of days as well as attending a funeral of a very close friend and so haven't been able to make any photos.
Hopefully with a weekend of rest and TLC, I will feel better at the beginning of the week.
We shall endeavour to post a new photo every day in and around the City of Guelph during the year. We will try to get photos of places around Guelph that you would like to see so please just request this.

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Wellington County Court House
In 1837 the provincial legislature established the provisional District of Wellington and authorized the erection of a court house and jail at Guelph.
Construction of the two structures, designed by the noted Toronto architect Thomas Young, commenced under the supervision of a committee of local magistrates.
Built by William Allan of Guelph, the limestone court house is one of the few structures in Ontario executed in the castellated style reminiscent of medieval fortifications.
It was erected in 1842-44 and has been expanded many times--each addition complementing the design of the original structure. An important judicial and administrative complex, the court house continues to serve this County and in 1980-81 was enlarged and extensively renovated for use as the Wellington County Administration Centre.

I have attended many concerts and special events in the wonderful auditorium of this old church. The pipe organ is magnificent.
From the church website:
The building is an undisputed masterpiece of Gothic Revival architecture. Here you will find beautiful stained glass windows and hear the sounds of both our magnificent Casavant pipe organ and our 36-bell carillon.
I just thought that this wonderful opera singer, Jerome Hines, singing two hymns, goes along with our picture today.
But more importantly, there are the people who worship here, who maintain the welcome to this church, and who try to serve God in their everyday lives. It is they who welcome you to this website, and hope that you, whether as tourist, pilgrim or worshipper, will be able physically to visit our church.

At the corner of Cross St. and Arthur St. S. stands a very old building that, up until a few years ago, housed in recent years, Len's Mill Store. But now, this old building has been renovated and now houses some pretty nice "loft-style" condos.
