Definitely not 1967! The city was a lot more built up by then... and those are the original Parliament buildings.
Imagine the huge expenditure of human energy required to create this substantial settlement in just 40 years from the creation of the Rideau Canal -- effectively, Ottawa's birthdate. There are plenty of shanties but also lots of stone and brick.
I remember visiting Ottawa for the first time in 1968, and wondered if it was really the capitol of Canada, I was looking for big buildings..Parliament stuck out. Beautiful..
Not 1967 for sure but I don't think the parliament buildings were there in 1867 either. I think we need a new date for this. Great picture though regardless of the date.
Think this one’s been posted before. The view is from a lot further east.
You are ahead by a century, as Gord would say
Definitely 1867 - those are the buildings that burned in 1916.
I've seen this image before. It dates from 1867, before the "crown" was added to the Victoria Tower (c.1868-1870)
What a huge mistake, That is not 1967
Before the 1916 fire.
That picture has been shown so many times
I was married in the Courthouse on Nicholas St in 1967. Ottawa wasn't built up back then. Just a handful of highrise apartments. I worked in the Temporary Buildings downtown.
