Howard Jewellers, Ottawa

Howard Jewellers, OttawaIt would appear that Howard Jewellers took over this streamline building as their Ottawa store in 1967. Prior to that I don't know who occupied this prime corner retail location.

The rondelle below the clock on the curved corner of the building carries the dates 1871 - 1949 so I assume it was built in 1949.

The rondelle also bears a shield with the coats of arms of the Canadian provinces and native fauna such as the beaver, fox and geese.

    This is the previous site of an old Dominion Bank branch. The bank merged with the Bank of Toronto in the mid-fifties.
