David Kilpatrick: Architect - See Talbot Street in the 1870s
The 1870’s was a boom-time in Elgin-St. Thomas set off by the building of two rival
rail lines. Many of the surviving commercial blocks, homes and churches from that
era are a testament to the prosperity of the times. Many of these are the legacy
of a young architect David Kilpatrick (1952-1902) whose brief time in the area left
us with some of our finest buildings. Present day images by Jan Row, complimented
by period photos and artifacts.
