Those two houses were located at 93 and 95 Sherwood Street in Lebreton Flats. Sherwood Street was running North-South between Booth Street and Broad Street. It was obviated in 1962 when the National Capital Commission (NCC) expropriated the Flats for its grandiose but yet-to-be-defined-fifty-years-later plan. The problem is not...

Once again, this comparison shows NCC's incompetence when it comes to urban planning.  The buildings shown on the archival photo (not the 2015 photo since there is nothing left) were the last ones on Broad Street before hitting Albert Street.  Broad Street was the western limit of Lebreton Flats and...

This non-common intersection from the non-square angle between Wellington and Albert Streets in Lebreton Flats has stropped existing in 1962, year at which the NCC expropriated everyone and their dog from Lebreton Flats.  Albert Street in that area was way more dynamic than what we have been used for the...

This aerial view of the former West-end of the city of Ottawa shows how Mechaniscville was isolated when pastures, the river and railways were its physical limits. Numerous elements have changed in the 80 years that separate both photos.  Downtown Ottawa and downtown Hull are now a forest of office tours.  The industrial activity has vacated...
