Picking up where I left off yesterday, a look up gives us the ceiling of the Memorial Chamber.
This book of remembrance is for those who died during the Korean War.
And this is for those who have died in service, other than the Korean War, since 1945. On the day I was here, names of Canadian dead from the Afghan conflict were displayed.
Here we have one more look at the heart of the room, containing the names of dead from the First World War.
I stepped back outside, pausing to photograph the other flanking wall of the entrance.
And then from the upper arcade I photographed down into Confederation Hall, still showing Christmas trim.
I came downstairs, where the Usual Suspects are mounted on walls between Confederation Hall and the lobby area outside the House of Commons. The portraits of prime ministers, along with other art in the building, will be removed for the duration of the project. This trio includes John Diefenbaker at far left, Pierre Trudeau at centre, and Joe Clark at the right.
Here we have John Turner at left and Kim Campbell at right.
Across from them is Brian Mulroney.
And Jean Chretien.
And today I finish with the portrait of Paul Martin, the last of the former prime ministers to have his portrait hanging here. The predecessor to the current PM has not yet had his official portrait done, perhaps because Stephen Harper worries that his portrait might capture the terrible secret that he's hidden for decades- that he's a vampire, and not one of the sparkly Edward Cullen variety of vampire.
