A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme day for the first of October is Shelter. And for those readers in the Ottawa area, the National Arts Centre has an open house this coming Sunday, starting at noon.
While the French embassy is on the eastern side of the parkland surrounding the Rideau River where it comes to an end, this building is on the west side. It houses facilities of the National Research Council, a science and technology organization dating back to the First World War. The building dates back to 1932, and is built in the Beaux-Arts style.
Tomorrow I'll start showing you Rideau Falls Park, on and around Green Island.
