Photographer's Note

The Library of Parliament (French: Bibliothèque du Parlement), was designed by Thomas Fuller and Chilion Jones, and inspired by the British Museum Reading Room. It is the main information repository and research resource for the Parliament of Canada. The library is the last untouched part of that larger building's original incarnation, after it burned down in 1916. The library has been augmented and renovated a number of times since its construction in 1876, the last between 2002 and 2006, though the form and decor remain essentially authentic. The building today serves as a Canadian icon, and appears on the obverse of the Canadian ten-dollar bill.
