Photographer's Note

Elora is a community in the township of Centre Wellington, Wellington County. It is well known for its 19th-century limestone architecture, its artistic community and the geographically significant Elora Gorge.Elora was founded in 1832 by Captain William Gilkison, a British officer recently returned from India. Originally called Irvine Settlement, the village was renamed Elora when the post office was established in 1839. Gilikson named the community after his brother's ship, which was itself inspired by the Ellora Caves near Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India.
