Description:
Black and white photograph of the old gateway to Brock's Monument in Queenston : wrought iron decorative gate with stone posts on both sides (each with stone lion atop). The small, two-storey stone building on right side was designed for the keeper of the monument. There some trees (mostly conifers) behind the entrance and a dirt road in the front of the house.
Undated but before 1909.
Notes:
The gates and the keeper’s lodge at the gateway were built in 1856 - the same year as the present Brock's monument. In 1909 the gates were moved and set up as entrance for passengers of electric railway, then in 1941-42 moved back to their original site.
