Twenty-four never-before published essays on the history of Ottawa, nineteen of which are in English (five in French), brings together professional historians, archaeologists, archivists and leading popular historians whose work reveals the rich tapestry of the city. Pre-contact society, French-Canadian voyageurs, the early civil service, the first labour organisers and Jewish peddlers are among the many fascinating characters covered. Readers will also learn about the origins of local street names, the Great Fire of 1900, Ottawa's multicultural past, the demise of its streetcar system, Ottawa's transformation during the Second World War and the significance of federal government architecture. Construire une capitale - Ottawa - Making a Capital is an indispensable collection for those interested in local history and the history of the Canada's capital.
