Descending the stairs from Victoria Park in Elora, Ontario, you are welcomed onto the river bottom with a number of trails and breathtaking views of the Elora Gorge and the eye-catching David St. Bridge. Among the many wonderful sites that the gorge has to offer is a not-so-obvious and mysterious graffito.
Easily missed, but well worth looking for, the inscription is at the bottom of the stairs into the gorge, about 50 feet along the trail next to the escarpment. It reads “Archie Scott Queen’s Jubilee June-21-87.” This graffito has not only been expertly carved into the rock with a chisel, but is also of historic significance.
