History

Following his honorable discharge from the Royal Canadian Navy at the end of World War II, D.G. (Mike) Willis ran his father's store in Seeley's Bay until 1959, when he operated an aerial photography company known as Rideau Aerial Photography, in partnership with his brother-in-law, Jack Wyatt. He did much contract and commercial work. His business took him down to the Maritimes and out to Western Canada, although much was concentrated in Eastern Ontario. Flying mostly out of Seeley's Bay, a small town approximately twenty minutes north of Kingston, his aerial images provide a stunning and detailed record of an area from Belleville to Brockville to Smiths Falls in particular, and includes all points in between. Although now retired, D.G. (Mike) Willis is still active in a number of personal pursuits, including a detailed study of the archaeological record of the region around Kingston, and the local lapidary association.
