I start today with more shots around the Library Of Parliament. I think that this space is the most beautiful room in the National Capital Region.
The panels here include this one referencing a procession outside Parliament in 1927 after the death of U.S. Army pilot Lieutenant Thad Johnson, who died in a plane crash at what was Hunt Club Field and is today the grounds of the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, while escorting Charles Lindbergh to Ottawa as part of a twelve plane escort tour for the famed pilot around North America.
This one is more recent, and includes some of the statistics of the building. Prime Minister Brian Mulroney is signing the Japanese Canadian Redress Agreement in 1988, an acknowledgment of the internment of Japanese Canadians during the Second World War.
One last look inside the Library, though I have kept an extra shot stashed away in a Victoria Day post for next May.
Back out in the Hall of Honour, I photographed some of the details, including this stained glass window.
And then there was this carving as part of the wall.
A large memorial plaque was nearby. It pretty much absorbed the light (I didn't think of switching on flash), making reading it impossible on a photograph, but fortunately it has a companion beside it with the same inscription.
The inscription in English and French notes that it is in memory of Bowman Brown Law, a Nova Scotia MP who died in the fire that destroyed the first Centre Block. I will be carrying on with this series, picking up in the Senate foyer. There's an event here late in the afternoon that I plan on attending, and depending on how many photos I take, I might have that tomorrow and then return to this series the following day. If I'm only taking one or two shots, I'll add them to the Ottawa Daily Photo Facebook page this evening.
