The #EastMemorialBuilding almost fills up a block, running from #WellingtonStreet to #SparksStreet, and from #LyonStreet to - not exactly #KentStreet. As you can see in the first photo, an historic #church - #StAndrewsPresbyterianChurch - which I've already posted photos of twice, is on the corner of Wellington & Kent, the #DepartmentOfJusticeCanada could only extended their offices to Kent decades later, with a #glassbuilding around the back of the church. In later photos you can see the #animal stone reliefs carved above the #SparksStreetMall entrances of the building, notably #moose and #bear. 🏢⚖️🏢
"Located in Ottawa’s downtown, and occupying an entire city block, the East Memorial Building connected by a linking memorial colonnade, to its mirror image the West Memorial Building, is a monumental seven storey, smooth stone building. Composed of a low-pitch #copper roof with dormer windows, a tall pavilion-roof corner tower, and tall narrow piers between the windows and stepped volumes at the building’s sides. The designation is confined to the footprint of the building."
[...]
"The construction of the East Memorial Building is one of the best illustrations marking the beginning of a new stage in Ottawa’s development as the Capital of Canada. The building completed the transition of Wellington Street from mixed small-scale residential and commercial use to monumental buildings housing government functions. The East and West Memorial Buildings are also major components in the comprehensive master plan developed for the capital by the internationally known planner and architect Jacques Greber. These buildings were erected as the federal government’s principal memorial to those killed during the Second World War."

Continuing my pre-Canada Day #Canada150 walk down with the #VeteransMemorial which links the East and West Memorial Buildings, spanning #LyonStreet where it meets #WellingtonStreet between 284 & 344 Wellington Street. As mentioned, the #WestMemorialBlock shown fills an entire block, from Wellington to the #SparksStreetMall and from #LyonStreet to #BayStreet. This photos show how it is attached to the #EastMemorialBlock by a #WW2 memorial. One photo shows the western end of the building from the #SparksStreet side.

Continuing my pre-Canada Day #Canada150 walk down #WellingtonStreet in #DowntownOttawa, the East and West Memorial Buildings, at 284 & 344 Wellington Street, are post-WW2 buildings always intended to mirror each other - although it took some 15 years to build both. The #WestMemorialBlock shown here fills an entire block, from Wellington to #SparksStreet and from #LyonStreet to #BayStreet. It is attached to the #EastMemorialBlock by a #WW2 memorial. For decades, it has been wholly occupied by the Dept. of Justice, but that was not its original purpose. In the background you can see #PlaceDeVilleII's Tower C, Ottawa's tallest office building.

"These twin buildings are located on Wellington Street in Ottawa. They overlook the Ottawa River and Quebec's Gatineau Hills. Their architecture, in particular their chateau style, copper roofs and stone facing, is in keeping with the Parliament Buildings, the old stone churches and other federal buildings in the vicinity. The architects were Messieurs Allward and Gouinlock. Work on the East Memorial Building began in 1949 and was completed in 1956. The West Memorial Building was completed in l962."
"Construction of the two edifices, originally called "Veterans Memorial Buildings", began following the Second World War. In addition to honouring those who served and those who died in that war, the buildings would also house, under one roof, the employees of the Department of Veterans Affairs and the associated Agencies, who initially were housed in several locations in Ottawa." http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/memorials/national-inventory-canadian-memorials/details/9219

Human beings are made up of 70% water and yet we still don't understand the importance of it. Water is needed to function literally every part of your body, so drink up! This is the first thing I drank right after ramadan. 😍

Put fruits/melons in it to extract the vitamins from it plus get extra flavor. 🍋

Our members have been busy over the past few days providing first aid services at a variety of Canada 150 events. This is all  leading up to Canada Day on Saturday. Keep an eye out for more updates throughout the week on our other events.

A wider look at the #NationalLibraryAndArchives Building at 395 Wellington in #DowntownOttawa, down the street from Parliament Hill and the Supreme Court of Canada Building. Space for this was actually set aside in the 1930s but World War 2 and subsequent events delayed the actual construction for years.
🏢🏛🏢 "LAC's holdings include the archival records of the Government of Canada, representative private archives, 20 million books acquired largely through legal deposit, 24 million photographs, and more than a petabyte of digital content.[4][19] Some of this content, primarily the book collection, university theses and census material, is available online.[20] Many items have not been digitized and are only available in physical form.[21] As of May 2013 only about 1% of the collection had been digitized, representing "about 25 million of the more popular and most fragile items".
"The collection includes:
the proclamation of the Canadian Constitution Act, which bears marks left by raindrops during a ceremony on Parliament Hill in April 1982 when Queen Elizabeth II signed it; the British North America Act, which features editing changes made by the first Prime Minister of Canada, Sir John A. Macdonald; the oldest book in the collection, De antiquitate Judaica: De bello Judaico (Antiquities of the Jews and the Judean War), written by first-century historian Flavius Josephus and printed in 1470; the chair used by world-renowned pianist Glenn Gould while he played and recorded." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_and_Archives_Canada 🏢🏛🏢

The #NationalLibraryAndArchives Building has hosted some world famous speakers over the years. I've seen both #OsamuTezuka and #RohintonMistry speak here, among many others. But maybe the famous are these two outside the main entrance, a #bronze #sculpture by artist #LeaVivot:
The Secret Bench of Knowledge, which is one of several prominent copies:
"The "Secret Bench" can be seen in many places throughout the world. Some of these places are: #Ottawa, Ontario in front of the National Archives of Canada; Toronto, Ontario in front of the Professional Engineers Building on Young Street; New York, New York at 825 Fifth Avenue; Montreal, Quebec at McGill University; London, England outside the London Stock Exchange; Bonita Springs, Florida, USA. Each bench is uniquely inscribed by famous poets and writers from around the world. "#TheSecretBenchOfKnowledge that is located at the entrance to the Wellington Street Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa was laid at about 9 o'clock in the evening, in early May 1989, when sculptress Lea Vivot placed her work, Secret Bench, Lost Paradise, in front of the building. When people arrived for work the next morning, they were delighted to see the new addition and assumed that it had been put there by another government department.
"Not so. Lea Vivot had decided on her own to lend the sculpture to the National Library. Here is what she had to say in an interview published in the Ottawa Citizen: "The building needed something and I don't feel that artists have the time to go through the bureaucratic approach. In the same amount of time that it would take to go through all this (bureaucracy) I can cast another sculpture and enhance another space." http://www.leavivot.com/secret_bench.htm 🏢🏛🏢

It's six days to July 1st and Canada's 150th Anniversary, so it's time for a walk down #WellingtonStreet, which is lined with historic Government of Canada buildings. 395 Wellington, at the western end of the street, is the #NationalLibraryAndArchives Building, built from 1963 to 1967 (in time for Canada's #Centennial 50 years ago), designed by Mathers and Haldenby. Previously called the Public Archives and National Library Building, it is a "comprised of two symmetrical four-storey wings, which wrap around a central nine-storey tower block. Clad in grey #granite stone, the building is accented with polished granite panels and brushed aluminum railings. The generously glazed lower four storeys of the building form a raised forecourt plaza at the front on Wellington Street. The solid tower above them, containing the stacks, is perforated with small square openings. An auditorium projects out from the west side of the building. Located at the Western extremity of Ottawa’s Parliamentary Precinct on a site overlooking the #OttawaRiver, it is highly visible from many vantage points. The designation is confined to the footprint of the building. [...] The home of two of the Nation’s pre-eminent cultural institutions and a manifestation of their union, the Public Archives and National Library Building constitutes one of the best examples of the development and recognition of Canada’s cultural and intellectual identity. The building represents the preservation of the national collective memory, which both institutions gather and disseminate. With the site set aside and building plans prepared by 1952, the building was in continuity with the aim of the 1912 expropriation of Wellington Street’s north side for use by federal institutions. It is a very good example of the realization of the Gréber plan’s intent to form an appropriate and stately western end of Wellington, which was seen as the focus of government activities." http://www.historicplaces.ca/en/rep-reg/place-lieu.aspx?id=13053 🏢🏛🏢
