A competent and pleasing egg tempera rendering, using the mediæval method of combining pigment with egg yoke and water, of the picturesque dilapidated old 1827 Charles & Jonas Jones red brick and concrete grist mill at Lyndhurst, Ontario (Hwy. 33 nr. Morton). With rafters showing through the timbered roof and cement buttress burst apart and its rows of unglazed windows which give testament to the mill's former industrial glory when the area was known as Furnace Falls.
