Where In Ottawa LIV

Fifty-four locations. Fifty-four places in the city in which we live. And the Roman numeral for 54 almost spells live.

And, while January is going to spell the beginning of a pseudo-hiatus for The Brown Knowser, I'm not sure that I want to end Where In Ottawa on this number. Maybe I should have one more, make it 55—LV?

Or, when The Brown Knowser returns—whenever that will be—should I start with a 55th contest?

We'll see how productive the New Year begins, as I shelve this blog to work on my next novel; for now, let's treat this one like the last Where In Ottawa for a while.

If you have never played this photo challenge before or need a refresher, here are the rules:

  • If you think you know the location of the structure in the image, leave your guess in the Comments section of this post. Answers sent to me by Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, or any other method than by writing a guess in the Comments section do not qualify for this challenge. I will not reply to any other form of guess.
  • If you were with me when I took the photo, you may not participate in the challenge.
  • If you have won Where In Ottawa in the past, you may still participate.
  • You may leave as many guesses as you want.
  • Starting tomorrow, I will leave clues to the location in the upper-right column of this post, adding a new clue each day until the challenge is solved.
  • If the challenge has not been solved by 17:00 EST on Friday, December 11, the challenge will end and I will reveal the location on Monday, December 14.
  • There is no prize for winning the challenge. You only come away with a feeling of pride, having proved that you know this city.
  • The winner will be announced at the first available opportunity.
 Are you ready? Here's the photo.

Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!

And good luck.


  1. Is it are on the front lawn of a house on First Avenue between Bank Street and Lyon Street?
