The other Niagara - more restrained than Niagara Falls. According to Wikipedia:
"Niagara-on-the-Lake is important in the history of Canada: it served as the first capital of the Province of Upper Canada, the predecessor of Ontario, called Newark from 1792 to 1797. During the War of 1812, the town, the two former villages of St. David's and Queenston, and Fort George were the site of numerous battles following the American invasion of Upper Canada, and the town was razed. Niagara-on-the-Lake is home to the oldest Anglican and Catholic churches in Ontario, and the oldest surviving golf course in North America."
I discover that this is Queen Street, with the Memorial Clock Tower. Google Street view shows that some of the older buildings, sadly, have gone, but the place still has a certain style.
