A view of the lower flight of three locks, the basin and the upper detached lock in the canal cut to the east of the channel of the Rideau River. Several private dwelling and shops are shown on Jason Island, with a bridge leading over to Wardsville (Smiths Falls). The weir across Hornet’s Snie is visible just above these buildings, but the 23 foot (7 m) high dam, to the left of the weir, is somewhat obscured. Defensible lockmaster houses are located at both the combined and detached locks. (John Burrows, watercolour over pencil, Archives of Ontario)

The earliest roots of the Parish were forming at this time. This painting emphasizes how the original congregation was actually meeting “in-the-countryside” and not within the town per se.
