johndeacon As a practicing lawyer for 50 years, I been involved with the legal system and the buildings constructed to house the courts. My travels over the years have taken me to every state and state capital in the United States. I began to notice that each county had a distinct courthouse and, I began to photograph the buildings and gather information. In addition, I have now visited 172 countries around the world plus many non countries like Anguilla, Greenland, Gibraltar, etc.


I am a member of the Law Society of Manitoba and was appointed as Queen’s Counsel in 1997.  Further information is available at,345/14/john-e-deacon-q-c
