looking over the Ottawa River from Parliament Hill, just before the Great Fire of 1900 wiped out two thirds of Hull. Massive lumber piles on the right (possibly belonging to JR Booth). Original EB Eddy Sulphite Plant on the right.
here is a "zoom-in" of the train sheds at Ottawa's Union Station in Novermber of 1940.

That building to the right of the service station was a LCBO warehouse, I think someone said.
Looking towards Nicholas Street over the train tracks leading to Ottawa's Union Station in the later 1950s. The photographer is on the Mackenzie King bridge, and that is the east end of the Laurier Ave. Bridge on the right. Now this entire view would be blocked by the DND building -- although, of course, much of it is gone. (Detail of CSTM Stowell 46-4)
