Prince Edward County District Court-House and Gaol, Picton, Ontario

I took these photographs last fall while visiting Prince Edward County in Ontario. The courthouse was the site of Sir John A. Macdonald's first trial, apparently defending himself on an assault charge. Here is a photograph of Sir John A. and me, also taken in Picton:
There are some differences. If I recall correctly, my first trial was in small claims court in Vancouver, and I was not defending myself. I also never became the first Prime Minister of any country.
