Heritage Ottawa presentation on Ottawa Union Station and the Chateau Laurier at 100

Ottawa's downtown landmarks, the Chateau Laurier and former Union Station, (Government Conference Centre), are celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2012. A century earlier they represented the expansion of the Grand Trunk Railway into the capital and across the country and brought to prominence a new Montreal architectural firm, Ross & MacFarlane/Macdonald, the largest in Canada by the 1930's. Heritage Ottawa Vice-President David Jeanes, who has known both buildings since his youth and has studied them in great detail, particularly the Beaux-Arts station, will share his in-depth knowledge of these significant monuments.
