Step into the Pioneer’s World (8 photos)

I love visiting pioneer villages. There is no better way to step into the past and see how life was not so very long ago. (Short of actually time travel – if anyone has invented that please, sign me up!) I visited the Fanshawe Pioneer Village a couple weeks ago and thought I would share some images. I found the black and white shots lent a nice atmosphere, I hope you enjoy!

Shot in London, ON June 2018
