This page contains historical and present day photos of Ontario's King's Highway 29. All photographs displayed on this page were taken by the Webmaster (Cameron Bevers), unless specifically noted otherwise. Please note that King's Highway 29 once extended from Brockville northerly to Arnprior, but the northern section of the highway from Smiths Falls to Arnprior was later renumbered as King's Highway 15. For the purposes of organization, all historical photos pertaining to King's Highway 29 are listed on this page regardless of location. Present day photos of the renumbered section of King's Highway 29 between Smiths Falls and Arnprior are located on the King's Highway 15 Photos Page. Historical photographs are arranged in approximate chronological order, while present day photographs (Year 2000 to date) are arranged by location from south to north.
