I spent the long weekend at my cousin's in Cochrane, and on Friday afternoon I made a point to take some pics of the town's "uptown" area (most people in Cochrane refer to it that way). Cochrane is a four hour drive North of North Bay and has a population of 5,500 -- although that figure was boosted when the town amalgamated with it's surrounding township. The population in the town itself is around 4,600 or so. It was downright HOT in Cochrane that day! Take note of the town's very wide main street -- it seems that the town was expected to grow into a major city when they layed out the uptown streets -- too bad that didn't come to pass.
