Camp 30, the Lake Ontario Officers' Camp-Bowmanville, served as home to German army officer POW's from the Afrika Korps, fliers from the Luftwaffe, and Kriegsmarine officers. In June 1942, the prisoner count was 487 officers, 21 midshipmen, and 135 other men of various rank. My intent with these photographs is to give the feeling of actually walking around the camp shortly after it was abandoned as a POW facility. Therefore, I have presented the images in black & white, trying to create a nostalgic, gritty film effect. I hope you enjoy, and get a sense of how things might have been at CAMP 30 over 70 years ago.
