My main reason for visiting Guelph was its connection with my home town of Greenock. The founder of Guelph, John Galt actually lived in Greenock and is buried here. Here is his statue in Guelph.
There were some beautiful old buildings and shops in Guelph. There is a bookshop called Macondo Books (visit their fabulous Facebook page) which I could have spent hours in. Will tell you about the books I bought in another post.
This building particularly intrigued me - from a distance the top looks like a thistle. Wonder what it was and why it is so dilapidated?
My brother and I had a lovely meal in the Albion Hotel - fabulous.
A great day out and some lovely memories. Would really like to spend a few days there next time! Thanks for taking me there, Bro!
