It's 1979 & The Canadian Rally Of The Tall Pines Starts In Downtown Peterborough

In 1979, the starting point for Molson's Rally of the Tall Pines took place in Peterborough as part of the last stop in Molson's Rally Championship of Canada series that year.

Here are the cars rolling into Peterborough to begin preparations...

The racers come from all over North America and get their cars ready (some rocking trucker hats and plaid, like this guy from Rochester, NY)...

The official start area for the race is at Peterborough City Hall in the downtown...

And the race begins with the "transit stage" in downtown Peterborough...

Then the next stage of the race begins outside the city in a more wide open area for spectators...

Watch the full video of the race highlights here...

Peterborough Downtown Now On Google Business View

Sam's Place Google Business View

You can now take virtual tours of participating downtown shops, cafes and restaurants thanks to a new initiative announced by Birchbark Media and the Downtown Business Improvement Area. Now people who aren’t familiar with the unique, welcoming spaces in downtown businesses can get a feel for what’s behind those doors by using Google Business View first—a 360-degree virtual tour powered by Google Maps Street View technology. It’s a great way to engage new visitors to the city and to the downtown.

Anyone who has used Google Maps Street View will be instantly comfortable with Google Business View. Similar to how someone on a smartphone, tablet or computer can take a virtual tour of a city—“walking” along streets with a complete 360-degree view of the surroundings–Business View offers the ability to go beyond the storefronts, to look inside shops, restaurants and cafes, to “walk” down aisles and in and out of various rooms.

Birchbark Media, the first local company certified by Google to produce the Google Business View virtual tours, reached out to several of its neighbours downtown to launch the program before extending the initiative to businesses throughout the community. Get on Google Maps to wander through the gallery and framing shop at Christensen Fine Art on George St.; head down the street to peek inside Gentry Apparel to see the sharp, spacious layout of men’s and ladies’ clothing; or check out the interior of Dreams of Beans café on Hunter St.
