The Glengarry News - - News -

Mem­o­ries of Glen­garry can be seen at the Na­tional Gallery of Canada in Ot­tawa where pho­tos by John Flan­ders are on dis­play. One of the gelatin sil­ver prints, made in the 1960s, shows auc­tion no­tices in the win­dow of the de­funct The Alexan­dria Times newspaper while an­other is of a Coca-Cola sign in Mart­in­town. The no­ta­tion reads that the Eng­land na­tive pho- tographed towns in Eastern On­tario to pre­serve a record of their com­mon ar­chi­tec­ture. He said: “In­dus­tri­al­iza­tion and ur­ban prob­lems have made us over­look the ru­ral dilemma – eco­nomic de­cline and ur­ban growth. A whole way of life is dis­ap­pear­ing and with it an im­por­tant part of our her­itage... we must look and learn be­fore it dis­ap­pears com­pletely.”
