This photograph was taken about 1920, picked up at an antique dealer in Ottawa. It shows the recently built Chateau Laurier Hotel far left, the almost complete Parliament Buildings(Peace Tower not yet complete), the West Block Tower, St-Andrews Spire further west and houses on the bluff where the Supreme Court currently sits. Further right you can see lumber stacked as you near LeBreton flats, and of course the current flatwate section of our pumphouse course. The Parliament Buildings(apart from the contical Library) burnt in the great fire of 1916 and was rebuilt in a new style, with taller central Tower.
