Another look at #TinHouseCourt, this time from the #MurrayStreet entrance. The first two photos are a better look at the historic (albeit reconstructed) #CastorHotel; the last tenant in 449 Sussex was #HazloLaw (now further north on #SussexDrive). The 4th photo is a fresh angle on the #TinHouse mounted to the #limestone wall. In the final photo, you can see the new 7 Clarence #NCC building from Murray St. 🏬🏛🏠🇨🇦
"Between Clarence and Murray is 449 Sussex, formerly the Castor Hotel. In days gone by, when illiteracy was far more prevalent, businesses depended on visual aids as references. A carved wooden beaver ("#castor" is French for "#beaver") was once displayed here. Originally built around 1865 for François-Xavier Lapierre, the hotel became property of Edmond Chevrier in 1877. For years it was Monette's barbershop, sporting the gay red, white and blue striped column announcing his trade. The NCC rebuilt the present brick building in 1978 after the original design featuring a steeply pitched roof with dormer windows. Iron guardrails march around the edge of the roofs to thwart cascades of snow from falling on passersby." Katherine Fletcher, 2nd edition "Capital Walks" page 59

"Wow" - Katy Perry

Currently, the #TinHouseCourt behind #SussexDrive - between #ClarenceStreet and #MurrayStreet - is still undergoing extensive #renovations, but I can still show you the #TinHouse itself, which I first mentioned in June when posting about Dalhousie St also in #LowertownOttawa. I can also show you a look at the #CastorHotel's back, which is mostly visible on this side. There was a fountain here, which I expect to be returned soon. In the 4th photo, you can see the #steeple of #NotreDamedeOttawa just a block north. 🏠🏬🏛⛲️
"Cross Clarence and enter the beautifully restored Tin House Court, immediately to the left of 13-15 Clarence [and right of 7 Clarence]. You are walking through the original tradesmen's entrances and stables of such mid to late nineteenth century Sussex businesses as the Castor Hotel... Take special notice of the preserved façade of roofer, contractor and tinsmith Honoré Foisy's 1905 home, now mounted on a limestone wall. It has all the appearance of a fantastical metal #sculpture, but it is the actual façade of Foisy's house, which once stood at 136 Guigues Street. Tin was once a commonly used construction material as it was inexpensive and shielded the building from rain, sleet and snow. As with many artisans, Foisy used his own home to advertise his considerable talents.
"Continue through this enchanting courtyard. A cascading fountain enlivens the quiet mood, and park benches are conveniently placed, inviting you to stop awhile, to imagine the days of horse-drawn wagons and bustling activity that once was the life of Lowertown."
- Katherine Fletcher, 'Ottawa Walks' page 88

Immediately behind 465 Sussex Drive is 7 Clarence, the #NationalCapitalCommission's "International Pavilion", near the intersection where the #USembassy's main #SussexDrive entrance is. The new building is on the site of a #heritagebuilding previously on #ClarenceStreet which, with much controversy, the NCC demolished in 2014.
🏛🏬 "...the building — an 1870s addition to the rear of the well-preseverd 465 Sussex Dr. — was constructed with “rubble” materials and limestone of “poor quality”, according to a Jokinen Engineering Services report that was ordered up by the #NCC.
"The consultants believed back in early 2013 that while the building was unsafe for passersby, the walls could have been rebuilt with “original stone that can be reused where it is adequate.” For the stones that were not salvageable, the engineers suggest replacing them with new material “which is still available.”
"But by the end of 2013, and upon further investigation, Jokinen wrote in a letter to the NCC that “the structure is clearly beyond the point of reconstruction.”
"NCC officials have said 7 Clarence was built in a substandard fashion as an annex to 465 Sussex, and never meant to last. Mark Kristmanson, the NCC’s CEO, opined Friday that the commission “nurtured that building through a long life cycle.”
"Perhaps. Although if you stop feeding your pet fish, it will come to the end of its life cycle pretty quickly. And it doesn’t appear the NCC has done any major structural repairs at 7 Clarence since the 1970s. It may not have been constructed to last, but if we have deemed the building important enough for official heritage designation, aren’t we then obliged to make sure that it does last?"
