This Long Sleeve T-shirt features a crest for Cainsville created by local Brantford artist Dave McCreary. Modeling t-shirts with the crest are cousins Jason Caver and Wade Cummerson who grew up and live in Cainsville. Photos were taken at the Cainsville flea market. Cainsville started off as a rural Black Canadian Settlement called Bunnell's Landing. Joseph Brant had given an initial land grant to a handful of free, formerly enslaved Africans. Throughout the 1800's other black settlers, who were not part of the original land grant, purchased land in the area to be close to a larger black community. Most of the settlers were African American freedom seekers or descendants of those who had escaped to the area through the Underground Railroad.
