Photographer's Note

Good to be back here, it's been a while since I posted here.

From Wikipedia:
"It is a High Victorian Gothic Revival style building, attached to the rear of the Centre Block at Parliament Hill, was opened in 1876. On February 3, 1916 fire destroyed the Centre Block but thanks to the vigilance library clerk Micheal MacCormac the library was spared. He detected the fire and ordered a set of iron doors between the Library and the Centre Block slammed shut. The Library also has many more facilities within a short radius in downtown Ottawa.

A picture of the Library can be found on the new Canadian $10 bill, or the immediately previous version of the $20 bill."


BTW, I've started my photoblog ( few days ago, I'll be happy to see you there too.
