Republishing of Ottawa’s Britannia!

Originally published in 1983, Ottawa’s Britannia traces the story of the growth and change in Britannia over it’s nearly 200 year history.  Compiled and written by James Kennedy, it is augmented with the personal recollections of Eva Taylor, lifetime resident of Britannia and local historian.
Copies of this seminal work are now virtually impossible to find and valued by those that have one.  The BVCA has restoring the original text and re-scanned many of the original compelling photos to introduce this treasured book to a new generation of readers.
Copies are available for sale at the Britannia Coffeehouse, 273 Britannia Rd.
