Lost Ottawa

Looking down on Ottawa from the top of the Victoria Tower in the old Parliament Building, circa 1900.

Wonderfully colored and wonderfully clear. You can really see what the area was like around Union Station.

You can also see how packed with buildings the blocks east of Elgin were at the time. All demolished for what ultimately became the site of the War Memorial, with a few fires thrown in.
