The 19th century cannon outside the King's Wharf Theatre in Discovery Harbour Penetanguishene on Georgian Bay in Ontario, Canada, is a reminder of the busy naval base that was constructed to protect the Upper Great Lakes.

In 1793, Sir John Graves Simcoe realized the possibilities of the deep bay for ships to be harboured and maintained, but it was 1817 before the work was began on the 'Naval Establishment'. Sir John (February 25, 1752 to October 26, 1806) was the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada 1791-96. Bayfield's Charthouse, located behind the cannon was the home of Lieutenant Henry Wolsey Bayfield (1795-1885) who was lake surveyor for the Admiralty.

The King's Wharf Theatre, was originally a warehouse, one of the historic buildings of the naval base. Today, the Theatre houses the Drayton Summer Theatre and features plays such as 'The Odd Couple' and 'High School Musical'. The little theatre can seat 385 people and its intriguing location adds to its charm.
