Must follow: Lost Ottawa on Facebook
We’re always on the hunt for great local projects to feature (and follow) and Lost Ottawa is one of them.
Started by David McGee, the Facebook community is devoted to historical images of the city and surrounding area, and anyone can submit. And, best yet, by liking the page you’re in for an (almost daily!) visual treat in your feed – as well as some really solid historical background.
Here’s a quick glimpse of a few of our recent favourites:
As of today, the project has nearly 10,000 likes.
“[With] the pictures I put up, people learn things about the city that they didn’t know,” McGee told CBC. “Part of it is that the people can share their stories and their memories of events and very frequently I’ve had people say…I was in that crowd, that’s me!”
So what are you waiting for? Head on over to Lost Ottawa and check it out.
