It's been a long week of clues for this month's Where In Ottawa, but yesterday the mystery was finally solved. The location for the photo is the First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa.
Congratulations to Nikolai, who figured it out. By request, he has claimed an electronic copy of Songsaengnim: A Korea Diary.
Here's a breakdown of the clues:
- Meeting point—this clue has a couple of meanings: the Unitarian Church is a congregation of faiths, a place where everyone can meet; also, each of the beams flow up the spire of the building, meeting at the point.
- A river's view—not only do the rear windows of the building look out across the Ottawa River Parkway, but also out onto the river. And vice-versa.
- Lotta Hitschmanova—this was a givaway: a Canadian humanitarian, Lotta helped to found the Unitarian Service Committee (USC) of Canada with the help of the people of the Ottawa Unitarian Congregation. A bust of her stands inside the church.
