How do you like it, how do you like it?
October's Where In Ottawa has been solved by a fellow named Marc. The location of this month's challenge is, indeed, the Moore Farm Estate, on Boulevard Alexandre-Taché, in Gatineau.
When I take the bus into work, I pass this stately farm and I have always wanted to photograph it. One morning in the summer, I did just that.
I'm surprised that Marc solved the challenge so quickly, given the clues I provided. Perhaps he sees the estate regularly, too? Here are the clues, explained:
- La vieille fermeI was hoping that the fact that I wrote "the old farm" in French would point to the fact that this estate is on the north side of the Ottawa River, in Québec.
- A century old: perhaps morethe Moore Farm was built around 1910 or so; I threw in "more" to play with the name.
- Family-owned until '73in 1973, the estate was donated to the Government of Canada in 1973 by Mrs. Virginia Parker Moore.
