Bothwell Ontario


Bothwell is a small town South East of Petrolia. They had an Oil Boom of their own ca.1860s.
Also JH Fairbank had interests there. Bothwell also has an Oil Museum  that is of extreme interest to historians of the Canadian oil history.
I will have more on Bothwell in this spot. Send me what you have.

Also the paper bag says 'Bothwell Express', a cool point in this pic is the street side carriage step to the right.





Not the greatest quality but a very interesting pic
