Between the Bridges
Looking north across the old Bank Street Bridge.
This walk will take us from the Bank St Bridge over the Rideau Canal south to Billings Bridge over the Rideau River. We will stroll down Bank Street from Echo Drive to Billings Bridge (all downhill), noting what is there today and what was there in the past. When did the Mayfair Theatre open? What preceded today's Canal Bridge? Memories of the Bank Street streetcar. The Strand Theatre. The churches. The bus stations. Many more.
