Suspension Bridge 1870 over the Ottawa River at the Chaudiere Falls connectiong Booth St. to Eddy St. in Hull designed by Samuel Keefer

Stumps of white pine trees in Dow's Lake dating back to 1830-32.
Dow's Lake forms part of the Rideau Canal in Ottawa and was known as Dow's Great Swamp before the building of the Canal. The swamp was flooded and has been known since then as Dow's Lake. The white pines here were killed by flooding to make way for the Canal and the stumps were exposed when this photo was taken in April, 1959. Apparently, the stumps were cut down at ice level and the axe marks by Colonel By's men could still be seen.
1st photo: Clark Dairy, apperently tried this idea for vending milk in the 1950s. (I never saw it or heard about a vending milk machine) I guess it never caught on... At this time the Clark Dairy company was owned by George Weston Foods, who had bought Neilson Dairy, the previous owner, in 1947. 2nd photo: Clark Dairy Delivery Wagon/Truck. 3rd photo: I think it first opened on Bronson Street? 4th phoot: This advertizing was when they were on Clyde Ave around 1960
