Several history-related posts have appeared in the local blogosphere.  In a series of new posts, Ottawa Past and Présent compares different parts of the city from 1938 with how they look today (see here, here and here).  For its part, GlebeSite has a photograph of a roundabout at Elgin and Pretoria from August 1938.

Urbsite has also several posts that look back at local history.  There are pictures of the Aylmer Apartments and the Bate Building that are over 70 years old, as well as photographs from several buildings in the 1950s, including 111 Sussex, formerly Ottawa City Hall and now part of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada. Other posts contains photos of the Pretoria Bridge traffic circle, as well as a history of the Cecil Hotel, which includes a photo from 1895.
