One of the frustrations that I had writing about the south-west corner of Bank and Sparks last year is that great visuals were surprisingly difficult to come by. Earlier this week, Trevor Button shared with Lost Ottawa a much better one taken by his grandfather in 1974 as the block was being prepped for construction of the C.D. Howe Building.
Although I don’t have anything in particular against the C.D. Howe Building, I do prefer a finer-grained urban fabric myself.
