Present Day King's Highway 75 (#1) Photographs

Left - Facing west along Hwy 3 from Currie Road (Former Hwy 75) in Wallacetown. The old verandaed false-fronted store at left really adds to the rural, yesteryear charm of this section of Hwy 3. Many of the once-important King's Highways through Southwestern Ontario such as Hwy 2, Hwy 3, Hwy 7 and Hwy 22 have fallen out of favour with motorists, due to the construction of newer, high-speed 400-Series Highways. Those seeking a more leisurely pace will find Hwy 3 from St. Thomas to Blenheim to be a very pleasant alternate route to Hwy 401. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing north along Currie Road (Former Hwy 75) from the Hwy 3 Junction at Wallacetown. The DHO assumed ownership of Currie Road between Wallacetown and Dutton in August, 1936. The new highway to Dutton was designated as Hwy 75. This short route was about 4 miles in length and it remained in service for over two decades. Jurisdiction over Hwy 75 was transferred from the province to Elgin County in December, 1957. Former Hwy 75 was subsequently renamed as Elgin County Road 8. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
