142. NFB — Visitors Are Coming! — 22 min 58 s
In this film the viewer joins other visitors on a guided tour of four historic Ontario homes. Two of them were once residences of Canadian prime ministers, Sir John A. Macdonald and William Lyon Mackenzie King; another, the birthplace of Dr. Norman Bethune; and the fourth, the home of a wealthy Cornwall landowner. The film affords the armchair traveller a comparative view of Victorian architecture, a close—up examination of restoration work done by Parks Canada, and a glimpse at the way Canadians lived 100 years ago.
