From Issue No. 233 | September 26, 2014

A fascinating stroll through a post-World War I planned community  a marvel of social engineering that was featured on the Governor General's Christmas card. Pocket-sized Lindenlea promised returning veterans subsidized housing in a community designed by one of the mega-stars of European urban planning. Learn about the struggles over style, designing to suit liberated women, efforts at ecological soundness, and more than one scandal. Threats today face this historic gem.
GUIDE: Jennifer Rosebrugh, former Heritage Ottawa president and Lindenlea resident.
