Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: James Munro Blacksmith Shop
Exploring photos with the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum.

This is a sketch of the former James Munro Blacksmith Shop, which was previously located at 136 Regent St.. It was built in the 1840s along with his saltbox-style home, which is still standing today at 117 Regent St. Photographs in our collection show the shop became derelict by at least the 1930s and was torn down in the mid 1960s. James Munro was also member of the Mechanics Institute, which encouraged the pursuit of scientific knowledge by hosting lectures and developing a local library.
