Please Help Identify

Can you help identify the places in these photographs?

In December 2020, I wrote an article in Thousand Islands Life about my Great-Great Uncle and Gananoque photographer, Arthur B. Munro, who was known as A.B. Munro.  Among my collection of his photographs are these stereopticon slides that have little or no identification. I am estimating that they were taken between 1897-1910. A couple have a hint written on the back (notated under the photo), while others have a key landmark in the picture.

Take a look and help us track down where in The Thousand Islands these were taken.
