Nice shot of Ottawa's City Centre with all its lights on in December of 2004, shared by Paul Mathieu Sean.
It used to be an industrial kind of place where you could get paint in 5 gallon buckets. Now it's more hip, and more fun, even for a geezer like me (and I used to buy that paint in 5 gallon drums). ... See MoreSee Less
My Mother worked for Campbells Printing in the early 80s ran switchboard on the office in the Tower and then again at Doculink in the 90s I also worked for Doculink in the 90s in the warehouse bays
I was hoping this would be converted into an indoor farmers market
Wasn't a large part of this complex Patri? I remember for years, seeing the sign and then it was gone. I'm not sure what business it was, but I knew the family, we livds on Main St. in Ottawa East.
Worked for Campbell Printing at City Center !
An example of a complex built for intermodal freight transport that then lost its purpose when most of the rail infrastructure was pulled out of the area. The train track siding still existed behind the wharehouse section up until the early 2000s only being removed when the confederation line for the O-train started operation.
Seem to remember trying for a job with a glaciologist who had office plus ice storage there. Might have been in late 1960s or early 1970s
I always thought it to be a real eyesore...one amongst many in Ottawa but it doesn’t look half bad in this picture under the canopy of darkness.
Seeing it like that (taken at night) kind of makes me miss it. Definitely looked more romantic at night than in the light of day.
It's an interesting building. I thought it was abandoned and left to urban explorers at their disposal.
Nice shot, Paul!
