"Stream" 1951


At Sue's

"Mill Pond" 1950



At Sue's.  Compare with the oil at Jeff's



And the version at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery.

House with Pond, 1951




From the Memorial Exhibition, I believe this series of painting is the "Mill at Bridgeport" or "Old Mill."  From what I can gather, this is the mill that was located at 10 Woolwich Street.  Most of the mill burned down in the early 70's, leaving only the silos.
