The Rideau Club was located just in front of the Parliament on Wellington.  It was destroyed by a fire in 1979 and was demolished the same year.  The site is still site empty in 2013, 34 years later, and the NCC does not have any plan to make this change....

The building on the right is the Russell House. It got damaged by a fire in 1928 and then demolished.  The site was expropriated by the federal government to build the War Memorial....
