Where In Ottawa: The April Edition

It's April and I ain't foolin'. Or maybe I am.

Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!

Once again, here's my Where In Ottawa contest, where I show you a snippet of a location and you tell me where I snipped it... err, snapped it. Be the first one to correctly identify the location, and you win.

Here's April's photo:

Think you know where this photo was taken? Leave a comment on this blog post. Your answer will be time-stamped so that you can fairly say that you were the first to identify the spot. If you are correct, I will reward you with a giveaway. This month, it will be an autographed paperback copy of my novel, Songsaengnim: A Korea Diary.

Starting tomorrow, if the contest hasn't been solved, I will start giving hints. You can find them by going to the top right-hand side of the blog page, directly above the photo of me. And if you follow me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook, I'll post the clue there too.

Good luck!

Update: with the second-fastest time for solving Where In Ottawa, Joe Boughner has correctly identified the building, which is at the corner of Wellington and Carruthers, in Hintonburg.

Congratulations, Joe!

  2. Congratulation, Joe! Tell me: do you live or work in that neighbourhood? That was fast.
