A colour slide of the Powerhouse at Boldt Castle on Heart Island in the St. Lawrence River before the renovations.
Notes:
Boldt Castle is located on Heart Island near Alexandria Bay, New York on the St. Lawrence River. It was built in 1904 but was vacant for 73 years before the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority purchased the property. Renovations began on the castle in 1977. This picture was taken prior to the renovations.

Leonard Beckley was born in Bude, Cornwall, England on 17 September 1905. He immigrated to Canada in 1910 with his parents, Richard and Jane, and his three brothers Herbert, Victor and Edgar. The family would move to 509 Beech Street circa 1916. He married Elizabeth (Betty) Ellen Roberts (1901-1984) and they did not have any children.

Mr. Beckley was an avid photographer, taking photographs of flowers, changing seasons, and events of Whitby. He also documented his family vacations to historic places through photographs. His other passion was gardening which was reflected in his “Old English” garden.
