Our Photo Heritage / Notre patrimoine en photos

Senate Ball / Bal au Sénat

Are these people, gathered in the Senate Chamber during an 1896 costume ball, asking YOU something? What brings YOU to Ottawa's history? Will YOU find yourself in a photo someday that others will want to study? Working with the Friends of the City Archives, you too are shaping the story of Ottawa and how those in the future will be able to enjoy it. [CA 0190]

Rotary Club / Club Rotary

Organizations such as the Rotary Club, whose members gathered at the Ottawa Dairy Farm in 1916, didn't know that the City of Ottawa Archives would later be interested in the story of their group and its work. Do you belong to a service organization or club in Ottawa that would like a home for its history? Give us a call!  [CA 15270]

Connaught Place / Place Connaught

Have any ideas for the Friends of the City Archives? Want to get involved? Send us an e-mail with your interests and suggestions. It's a lot easier than sending a telegram by bicycle messenger, like the one in the foreground of this 1926 photo of downtown Ottawa! The view is from Connaught Place (now Confederation Square) looking eastward toward Rideau Street. [CA 182340]

Vous avez des idées à partager avec les Amis des Archives de la Ville d’Ottawa? Vous voulez apporter votre contribution? Envoyez-nous un courriel et faites-nous part de vos domaines d’intérêt et de vos suggestions. C’est beaucoup plus facile que d’envoyer un télégramme livré par messager à bicyclette, comme celui que l’on voit au premier plan sur cette photo prise en 1926 au centre-ville d’Ottawa. Prise place Connaught (devenu depuis la place de la Confédération) la photo montre la rue Rideau dans la direction est. [CA 182340]
