OttawaStart is on a short summer haitus this week, so we're re-posting some of our favourite posts from the past few years. This one was originally published on January 7, 2009 on David Reevely's excellent Greater Ottawa blog.
David Reevely blogged about this video - a 1942 "travelogue" about Ontario, including about 5 minutes of colour footage of Ottawa's downtown. It's pretty rare to see colour photos of Ottawa from this era, and even rarer still to see video.
