Rideau Canal

The Rideau Canal, also known as the Rideau Waterway, connects the city of Ottawa on the Ottawa River to the city of Kingston, on Lake Ontario. The name Rideau, French for "curtain," is derived from the curtain-like appearance of the Rideau River's twin waterfalls where they join the Ottawa River. The canal was opened in 1832 as a precaution in case of war with the United States and is still in use today, with most of its original structures intact. The canal system uses sections of major…

Postcard from Ottawa, featuring the boathouse of the Britannia Canoe Club at the end of the Britannia Pier. Many a dance was held in the boathouse, which people could easily reach by streetcar from the city. Literally cool in an era without air conditioning. I believe this structure was destroyed by fire in 1918, but someone might know for sure.

Zellers and Woolworth's Carlingwood Shopping Center, Ottawa, end of 50s

Zellers and Woolworths were common department stores in Canada's Shopping Centers in the 50s and 60s. These branches were located in the Carlingwood Shopping Center in Ottawa, picture taken by the end of the 50s decade. The shopping center still exists today with the two other anchors which were at opening in 1956, Sears and Loblaws. The above stores were integrated in the mall and became boutiques as of today.

Ottawa’s Hidden Treasures: Britannia Beach sunset

For more than 15 years, I lived in Ottawa completely oblivious to Britannia Beach. I’d visited Mooney’s Bay, Lac Phillip, Meech Lake and scores of others, but none came close to the Lake Huron beaches of my childhood growing up

This photo taken in April 1942 depicts the intersection of Richmond Road and Carling Avenue at Britannia Heights. My late father, Harry Schroeter, operated the Esso Service Station at this location from 1947 until the early 1960's. Behind the garage is Dayton's Villas, a grill curb service with tourist cabins( called a motor court at the time) established in 1941 and operated by Alex Dayton. The motor court was the predecessor to what would come to be called the Town and Country Motel. Town And Country, Gypsy Style, Ottawa, Motel, Villas, Cabins, Ontario, Garage, Father
