Centennial Images Of The Council

The terrace on the west side of the Chateau Laurier offers a walkway towards Major's Hill Park. Each year, a government agency puts up display panels that last from summer well into fall. This year, with the centennial of the National Research Council being marked, the panels emphasized numerous projects the scientific organization has undertaken in the hundred years since its founding. I photographed several of the panels. Each can be enlarged by clicking on the images.

  2. I love the idea of display panels. You should document them every year! They are interesting.

  3. This is a superb idea for several reasons. It's easily available to people, it gives the citizens a great summary of what the agency does, and in this case, bolsters the scientific endeavor which is, at least in this country, challenged on a daily basis by people who still engage in magical thinking.

  10. I've always been proud of the nrc as it researched things to benefit the people as is shown in the wheel chair photo. I was most upset when Harper was thinking about closing the NRC.

  16. It's interesting to see the panels in the two languages. Down here near the border with Mexico people get upset when official documents are printed in two languages.

  17. @Nancy: thank you!

    @Janis: they certainly are.

    @Lowell: it was a fitting theme for this year.

    @Gracita: thanks!

    @Marianne: it's a great setting. Lots of foot traffic.

    @Linda: it was!

    @Jan: time certainly has changed in the century this organization has existed.

    @Tanya: they have done a lot.

    @Grace: and those were just the ones I showed.

    @Beth: thanks!

  18. @Sharon: they have a lot going on.

    @Red: well, he was never a fan of science.

    @Linda: thanks!

    @Marleen: it's been done for years now, and it's always a different theme.

    @Bill: I know they draw attention.

    @Tamago: that they are.

    @Norma: definitely!

    @RedPat: indeed.

    @Catalyst: in our case, both English and French are official languages, so it's common on signs like this- or on historical signs to have two side by side with different languages but the same material.

  19. I wish we saw those in many more locations. Little bits of interesting history may be a lot more palatable to many people.

  20. Interesting! The one about motorized wheelchairs caught my eye because my father used one for the last few years of his life.

  21. Alouette? I like that. :-) Of course, now I'm stuck with that tune in my head.

  23. I did enlarge them, but the print was still too small to see.

  24. @Pat: they work well here.

    @Lois: it was a good project for them to work on.

    @Revrunner: well, of course!

    @Cloudia: this is a good organization.

    @Mari: I can just read them, but they turn out bigger in the digital photos I've got stashed away.
