The Library remains intact, with the Centre Block replaced long ago.

Wow, thanks for the history lesson, but you are completely wrong; the photo you show is the actual parliament, the one before the 1916 fire have 1 less story and the tower was way way lower and without the " gargouille " gargoyle in the English translation they make in time .... and no clock .....














Actually the old photo I show was before they redo the roof of the tower , here the look of the parliament before the fire

The library survived the fire virtually unscathed, and remains the only original part of the buildings as they were before the fire.

A few years ago the entire roof of the library was removed, the building was restored and the roof replaced. Pretty amazing feat.

...um, and when I say 'replaced' I just mean it was put back on, though with new copper cladding.

Wow, was it that long ago? We were in Ottawa during the repairs as well, visiting my brother. Time flies, that's for sure!
