Across the street from the old schoolhouse I showed you yesterday, with a commanding view of the Ottawa River below, is the French embassy. It serves both as consular offices and residence of the ambassador.
It is an Art Deco design dating back to 1936, and sits on land on the east side of the park that I photographed from in my post two days ago.
A short walk east on Sussex Drive is the High Commission for South Africa. It dates back to 1841 when it was built for a banker. It's been in South African hands since the 1940s.
Around the corner is another entrance to the High Commission. Tomorrow I'll start showing you what I came down here to see: Rideau Hall.
