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.

LeBreton Flats ill-treated by history

LeBreton flats are completely burned down in 1900. Urban renewal once again wipes the neighborhood off the map in the 1960s. Most lots are still vacant.
