I saw a good documentary on TVO last night about Highway 7.
Max MacDonald has sent some of his photos of the Lost Highway, below.

I also watched the documentary. Very sad is some ways, especially to see how it looked in the past. That is progress 😦

Agree. It’s a good documentary. There’s a few old, rusty classic Lincolns a bit down the highway from the gas stations: http://www.30squaresofontario.blogspot.ca/2014/08/lincoln-continental-station-wagon.html

Derrick Roemer, of the two documentarians who put Lost Highway together (Neil Graham is the other individual), is an acquaintance of mine; we met at U of G in the mid-80s. He and Graham also did an excellent doc on the renovation (and related expulsion of long-time tenants) of the Gladstone Hotel. Highway 7 is one of my favourite road haunts in southern Ontario; Lost Highway really captures the spooky sense of loss and nostalgia that this roadway embodies. I’ll see if I can’t dig up some suitable pics from my own explorations of HIghway and the backroads adjoining it, from the last decade or so.
