Ottawa School of Art

It has been made aware to me that my Where In Ottawa contest is becoming ever-dependent on the clues that I give. To test that, I have a really easy clue on the fourth day of the photo challenge and, as predicted, the location was found.

That's okay. I want the photos to stump you.

Congratulations goes out to Mike, who correctly identified the Ottawa School of Art, in the Byward Market. Here are the clues, explained:
  1. 1879 association—back then, a group of prominent Ottawans formed an association of fellow art lovers who wanted to promote fine art throughout Canada.
  2. Half a block from home—when the Ottawa School of art moved to 35 George Street, in 1983, it was only half a block away from where it was originally located, at the corner of George and Sussex.
  3. In the Market for art—this was the giveaway clue. This art school is in the Byward Market. No further explanation is needed.

Next month, I'm going to return to posting only one photo for the contest. Like Mike, you'll have to rely on the clues and the original photo.

The next Where In Ottawa is Monday, July 6.
