This could also be an Adventure in Canadian Filmmaking!

The great thing about this image...it was taken at Lawrencetown Beach, which is about 20 minutes from where I grew up (and where my parents still live).

When I saw the National Film Board's The Railrodder, I had my suspicions that that was where Buster walks out of the surf at the start, but when I saw Buster Keaton Rides Again (a terrific making-of doc) it was quite clearly Lawrencetown Beach, and I later found stories about Keaton's visit in the newspaper microfilm.

BTW...that's where I'm going to have my ashes scattered.
