Mary Anne Harrison added the description for this : Almonte Hotel. Almonte Old Home Week. 1974-1975 maybe. Could be the bed races. Looks like Greg Hickey, Chris Blackburn, Tony Vaughan and Rod Houston left side of the photo on the porch. Brendan Mullins on the balcony in front of the window. Phil Maynard to the left of the front door. Maurice Sample, Mark Ward and Paul Shane on the right hand side of the porch. There is a plan to have Almonte Old Home Week resurrected in 2018 – July 26-29.
