New Ottawa City Archives Update







There was plenty of activity onsite at Tallwoods and Woodroffe on September 15th. This photo taken from the south shows the various layers of the walls on the archives wing.









This close up of the work at the east end of the archives wing, nearest Woodroofe Ave, shows bricks piled and a few layers in place forming the exterior cladding.



I was surprised there were still no windows installed, but there's hope. These Quebec-registered Prelco trucks were being unloaded. Prelco has supplied glass for many prestige projects, as indicated at the company website here.
