If memory is correct this river is the St.Lawrence and I do know that this is Kingston Ontario.
We spent a few hours here on our Canada holiday some years ago now - a coach trip - early morning calls and hundreds of miles travelled virtually each day but it was worth it. We remember Canada with great affection.

This is my mothers uncle - James Francis who was born around 1877 in Ardwick Manchester.The family originally came from north Wales and they often went back there on visits hence the photograph being taken in Denbigh.
I would imagine that this photo was taken between 1900 - 1910.
