We are honoured to have the President of the Ottawa Historical Society, James Powell, joining us on March 14 to talk about Ottawa Technological Firsts; that is, the stories of how major technological advances were introduced to Ottawa. The pictures on the poster show Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Ahearn and Guglielmo Marconi, as well as the Windsor Hotel that once stood at the corner of Queen and Metcalf. To learn what these had to do with the subject, you will have to come to hear the talk. As always, doors open at 7:00 pm, refreshments available, speaker will begin his remarks at 7:30 pm, or thereabouts. All welcome.
