The Historical Society of Ottawa presents: "Gateville & beyond. A village on the edge of city and countryside"

Photograph of the Parliament Hill skyline taken between the end of the 19th century and 1916.

Join Stephen McKenna, historian, author & musician, as we trace the history of a working class Gloucester village-like neighborhood - carved out of the former Billings Estate - and its transition from the era of ice houses, sawmills, brickyards, swimming creeks and horse-drawn wagons into the modern age of shopping malls and the practicalities of present-day suburbia.
