STOPS ALONG THE WAY

A FAIR BUILDING (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

10 Comments

This building, The Aberdeen Pavilion, was the central hall of the Central Canada Exhibition, that took place in Ottawa, Canada every August between 1888-2010 with the exception of World War II. What began mainly as an agricultural fair expanded over the years to include a midway. The land around the Pavilion has been redeveloped in recent years and the fair no longer takes place but this beautiful building, designated a heritage site, is still enjoyed by the public and houses other events throughout the year. I took the photo on a sunny day this summer but I think it lends itself to black and white.

  1. Lovely detail on the building, and that looks like a rather eccentric weathervane?

  2. I agree the B&W gives a very nice detail although I do like the color scheme of the building.

  3. I think this one looks good in b/w. It makes me look at the architecture more than the colour.

  4. Somehow, much older buildings – in South Africa too – demonstrate attention to detail and a concern for beauty. That type of craftsmanship has given way to mass production and quick profits. This looks a lovely building.
