Lost Ottawa Book Two

This is the follow up to our fabulous Lost Ottawa, Book One.

Like our first book, it draws on the stories posted to the Lost Ottawa community page on Facebook, where ordinary folks are always posting pictures that bring back forgotten memories of people and places around the city — and the sometimes crazy things thy used to do there.

Once again we have 75 of our most popular stories as chosen by the people who gave them the most likes and shares.

Each one comes with a picture, a short blurb, and a concretion composed of comments left by people who were determined to tell it like it was!

Get the book. You’ll be amazed at what you forgot you remembered.
