The Elphin is an iconic 1960s apartment building in Ottawa. The building had all the amenities of the day, including a darkroom for camera enthusiasts. The Elphin with its namesake elf and look retains a charm lost by the modern glass towers nearby.

  4. I am fascinated by the idea that this apartment building contained a darkroom for camera enthusiasts – this must have been a novelty even then. I wonder what it is used for today.

  5. I would have liked that place, instead of using our bathroom as a darkroom in the 70’s.
