CA-347758, sent by Julie.
Guelph is a city in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. 
Church of Our Lady Immaculate (known locally as the Church of Our Lady) is a Roman Catholic church located in Guelph, designed by Joseph Connolly. It is considered Connolly's best work. To serve a Roman Catholic parish of predominantly German settlers, this Gothic style-church was built between 1875 and 1883. The monumental church contains decorative carving and stained glass executed by skilled craftsmen.
The church was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1990. - in: wikipedia

CA-359890, sent by Tracey.
Tracey sent me this card from Port Dover, where she and her husband had their 1st date!!
Port Dover is also located in Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Erie.
The Port Dover Lighthouse is prominently located at the end of the west pier (breakwall), at the entrance to Port Dover Harbour.
The Port Dover Lighthouse is a good example of a building associated with the establishment of navigational aids on the Great Lakes.
Valued for its good aesthetics, the Port Dover Lighthouse is one of a number of square wooden towers built on the Great Lakes in the nineteenth century and is one of the oldest examples in Ontario of the small wooden lighthouses built in pre-Confederation years. - in:
