Photographer's Note

The Château Laurier hotel is celebrating its 100th birthday this year, having opened in 1912. It is one of Canada's iconic railway hotels, and the old Ottawa train station is located just across the street. Other famous Canadian railway hotels include the Château Frontenac in Quebec City and the Banff Springs Hotel in Alberta.

In the foreground are the Rideau Locks, which lead down to the Ottawa River. The locks are opened manually to allow the boats to pass.
