Ray PaquetteIt would appear to be farther south of Woodcock’s. The bridge is not visible, the Baptist Church’s spire is in the distance and the cafe sign to the right might is the New York Cafe was ( currently empty lot next to RBC.)
Rick Redmond–I believe this is the corner of Bridge and College street. The first building on the left would be the Central apartments. In in the early 60’s there would have been a restaurant in the downstairs, and Central Garage at the rear. It may have been called Peden’s garage at one time but I’m not sure but next down is where Howard Johnsons Menswear was later built.
The brick building next just past the alley was where Dot’s Cafe was, if you look closely you can still see the framed entrance. Next built later would be the Roxy Theater, torn down in the mid 50’s This was the 2nd movie theater in town the first one being where the Canadian office was. The street lights were there until the late 50’s or very early 60’s and were replaced by very bright fluorescent lights .There is an urban myth that a lost airplane headed into Ottawa mistook the new lights for the landing lights at Uplands and tried to land on Bridge St. only when seeing car lights did it pull up.
Joann Voyce From the autos and street lights, I would suggest 1930 early 1940
