Today's Daily Sketch

Quick sketch of 310 Cooper St., Ottawa

Today's quick sketch is of this beautiful brick house located on Cooper St. in Centretown, Ottawa. Built some time around 1874, it is surrounded by cobblestones - something seldom seen here in Ottawa.

The building located at 310 Cooper Street was designated under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act in 1984. (Source: City of Ottawa)

I really like the picture of the property with a tree in the front (now long gone).

The Heritage Ottawa Newsletter for 1984 describes a bit of a challenge in securing the heritage designation. I am so glad that heritage status was eventually achieved. 310 Cooper is a lovely little charmer and a joy to sketch
