Where In Ottawa XXXIX

For many of you who live in Ottawa, today is a holiday. Many of you have left town to visit friends and family, maybe relax at a cottage.

Good for you: enjoy!

While you're relaxing, maybe you can take in a leisurely game of Where In Ottawa. All you have to do is correctly identify the location of the photo, below, and leave your response in the Comments section to this post.

The winner of this challenge may be eligible to receive an autographed paperback copy of my novel, Songsaengnim: A Korea Diary.

However, the following conditions apply:
  • If you were with me when I shot the photo, you are ineligible to play.
  • If you have won the Where In Ottawa challenge before, you can still play, but no giveaway will be awarded.
  • Only correct answers that are posted in the Comments section are considered valid. No other form of communicating your answer will be accepted (if you tweet me with the answer, for example, I won't respond).
  • If you win the challenge and are eligible to receive the giveaway, you must collect the giveaway before the end of the month.
Each following day where the challenge continues, I will post a clue on the right-hand column of my blog. If the image doesn't help you locate the spot, perhaps the clues will.

Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!

And good luck! 

Update: Where In Ottawa has been solved. Tune in tomorrow to see where this structure is and who won the challenge. (Or just read the comments, below!)
