Beechwood Cemetery walking tour 2009

Sunday, October 4, 2009 saw the 15th annual historical walking tour of Beechwood Cemetery. Sponsored by the Ottawa Citizen for the Friends of Beechwood Cemetery the tour featured stops at the graves of eight notable Ottawa journalists, Philip Dansken Ross, Hamilton Southam, Nicholas Flood Davin, Alexander Smyth Woodburn, Archibald Blue, Robert Murdoch MacLeod, Fulgence Charpentier, and Jean Caroline Galloway.

Although rain threatened it held off until the very end of the tour and participants enjoyed a walk through the cemetery grounds which are particularly picturesque as the trees take on their autumnal colours.
