This coming weekend, on Sunday Aug. 19, Heritage Ottawa’s John Macleod will be conducting a walking tour of parts of the Glebe: http://heritageottawa.org/en/join_heritage_ottawa_a_walking_tour_glebe
Here’s a sampling of some of the houses he’ll be showing you, starting out with Thomas Birkett’s house at 517 O’Connor (at intersection with Clemow):
Or F.X. Plaunt’s Residence, near the corner of Clemow and O’Connor:
or Noffke’s own home at 20 Clemow, now undergoing a large restoration job:
As well as Central Park, where there used to be summer pavilions:
And maybe one or two of architect David Younghusband’s 1930s houses, like this one on Imperial Avenue:
Hope you get out and enjoy the tour – you’ll learn a lot!
