Large group of people, 1880’s? Photo is from the Walter Cameron estate. Playfairville is at the junction of county roads 7 & 12 — about a mile north of the village of Fallbrook, and eight or nine miles north-west of Perth, Ontario. Up to about 1900 Playfairville boasted several saw mills and even an iron mine. All that is left now is the church and three or four houses.
