Some new interpretive display panels have been added on the west side of the Ottawa Locks in the last few months. I photographed them on Colonel By Day. The panels explore the various peoples who have been here for thousands of years, long before white settlement, as well as the development of the Rideau Canal itself.
The cliff on the east side, viewed from near the Bytown Museum, leads up to Major's Hill Park. A statue of Colonel By himself is up there, just visible in the gap between trees, looking down on his achievement.
Inside the museum's first floor, I paused to photograph the old vault. This place was built solidly, with thick walls. It was built at a time when there was concern about an American invasion, so the walls had to be solid.
One last view from outside the Museum to finish off.
