A presentation by Bruce Chapman and Pat Brennan

Bruce Chapman will narrate details while showing some of his 8mm films (converted to MP4), of the Ottawa Region in the 1960s. Also included are video footage shot by Hugh Stowell and John Frayne. 

Whether it's old footage of the trains along the Rideau canal, up the Waltham sub, Maniwaki sub, or just seeing a locomotive on the turntable at Ottawa East, it will be worth your while to check this out. See you there!
