Banner: Canada by Design: Parliament Hill, Ottawa
Map showing bird's-eye view of the city of Ottawa, by Herman Brosius, 1876


from Hand Book to the Parliamentary and Departmental Buildings, Canada, by Joseph Bureau (1867)

“Ottawa having been selected by Her Majesty as the Capital of Canada, the sum of £75,000 was voted by the Legislative Assembly, for the erection of a Parliament House, and a premium of $1000 offered for the best design not to exceed that amount. Messrs. Fuller and Jones were the successful architects, and although the design was considered by many as too costly, responsible contractors were found who tendered within the government vote.”
