First Known Photo (Singular) of Ottawa
To accompany my current article for Apartment613, titled "First Known PhotoS of Ottawa," I'm posting the first known photo (singular) of Ottawa here.
|“View of the Rideau Canal looking East towards the Albion Hotel, Courthouse and Dickinson Warehouse, c.1857.” (Photo kindly provided by Bytown Museum – edited for clarity by Ashley Newall.)|
To get your bearings, centre-left in the above photo is the original (grey) Courthouse, which stood where Arts Court now stands (on the SE corner of Nicholas St. & Daly Ave.)
