Historical photographs website gets Awesome Ottawa cash injection

By Natascia Lypny, OTTAWA CITIZEN August 15, 2013 10:02 AM


OTTAWA — A website comparing photographs from Ottawa’s yesteryear and yesterday is Awesome Ottawa’s pick for a $1,000 grant this month.

Ottawa Past & Present juxtaposes historic photographs of the capital with newly taken snapshots posed at the same spot and angle of their older counterparts, courtesy of urbanism lover Alexandre Laquerre.

“I thought it would be interesting to show people what was there before, because I’m not sure if people really question what was there,” said Laquerre, adding that he wants his website to make people question whether Ottawa’s urban development since the Second World War has been positive or negative.

The website, created by the nanotechnology engineer in October, has since accumulated more than 300 photographic comparisons.

“I’ve spent a lot of time living in the city and looking at Alex’s pictures, and Alex’s site makes me think about the city in a totally different way,” said Avi Caplan, one of Awesome Ottawa’s award decision-makers.

The $1,000 will cover City of Ottawa Archives fees and part of the cost of a tilt-shift lens, which will help Laquerre take photographs whose composition more precisely matches their predecessors’.

Awesome Ottawa is a collective of 10 individuals who fund and select one local, innovative project every month.

You can check out Laquerre’s photographs at www.pastottawa.com.

Damn... and we got stuck with the bottom half. Ottawa would be so tall if all the buildings proposed way back then would have been built! Too bad the Peace Tower isn't 200m+ tall

The City approved a slightly shorter version but then the NCC went crying to the OMB, cutting the project to what we have today.

Dodged a bullet there. That other version looks like - um - er - CIRCUMCISION SCAR.

I think Campeau was going for something similar to la Tour de la Bourse in Montreal. At least, according to this Urbsite post.

Tour de la Bourse would look amazing where Place De Ville is!

I'm sure some of you have seen some of these pictures before but I think they are worth sharing again. I think these are some great shots of Ottawa! Some are newer than others and it shows how this city has changed over the past little while.

None of these pictures are mine and I found them from this really cool Spanish construction webpage. http://megaconstrucciones.net/


















Some of these pictures might even be one of yours! I think they references this forum on their webpage!

Cheers

I love the last shot! Too bad it's not a recent shot. This one seems to date from 2009 based on the fact that 180 Kent seems to be U/C and there is only one CP tower.
