Broadway/Findlay Instersection – Then and Now

The intersection of Findlay and Broadway Avenues, in the southwest part of the Glebe near Bronson Avenue’s bridge over the canal, is a less-well known area for those living in the central part of the Glebe.  Many drivers will encounter this spot when they are turning from Bronson from the south and are hoping to get to the Queen Elizabeth Driveway, as there is an access point near here.

Here is a photo of the unusual intersection from the 1920s, courtesy of the Dept. if Interior photo collection of Ottawa, housed at LAC:

Here’s the same intersection today (photo courtesy of Google Street View)…notice how the house with the corner lot at the intersection now has somewhat more expanded grounds…and bigger trees and more signage.
