From the Ottawa Archives, I’ve recently found the following shot of W.J. Lintell and Sons food market, as seen in January 1954:

In 1936, they had opened their grocery store in the Glebe, as seen here in the Ottawa Journal:

And here’s the same location today…though 750 is technically now the building next door where the Bridgehead is located!

  1. Hi Andrew,

    I’d like to frame and display a couple of the photos on your blog at my pub at 779 Bank st.
    Would you kindly let me know if you would grant me permission.

    • Thanks! Which photos are you interested in. You are welcome to display them. However, if they are historical photos, I think you’ll probably want to credit either Library and Archives Canada or the City of Ottawa Archives.

      Best regards,
      Andrew Elliott
