London, thus London Drive in Parkdale. Looking East.

Beautiful and peaceful!
But don't forget all of the back breaking, labor intensive work that went into producing this idyllic scene.
Clearing the land of a forest. Cutting down trees, removing stumps, burning and clearing the limbs, tilling the cleared ground, bending over and planting young trees, getting water to the young trees, milling lumber for the house,....makes me tired just writing about it.
And makes me appreciate how available fruit is today.
200 years ago there was no fruit here.

Looks like maybe the East Fork is right over the hill?

East Fork is down below where the light tan colored land stops. That was what, at least in my childhood was called the Dog River area and Pete Lenz lived down in there and also Checketts. Keep in mind there was no Highway 35 down through there then. Pete Lenz lived on the east side of the river and the Checketts lived on the same side of the river as this London place.
