Probably most of the buildings in this neighbourhood were built after 1900. This neighbourhood basically shows the transition from the elaborate ornamentation of Victorian styles to more functional and plainer modern styles. I don't know when these houses were built, but the house on the left is more Victorian in character. Look at the woodworking around the porch and the detailed masonry around the windows. The house on the right maintains conintuity with Victorian styles, but shows a stronger tendency toward Edwardian Classicism. This can be seen in the Classical details of the porch and the Classical palladian window at the top. As you can see, post-Victorian houses are much simpler (look at the window decorations, for example).
citizen j: I was in too much of a rush to actually look at the statue, it started raining toward the end of this tour. I'll check it out sometime.
xzmattxz: that is the Rideau Canal showing in a couple shots.
