Working Downtown

Working in the downtown section of Canada's Capital offers a unique opportunity to see some interesting automobiles being driven to work. Spring arrived early this year, and this week I had the opportunity to see a 1964 Impala HT, a 1966 Plymouth HT. and a Mercedes 550 SEL.

I also had the chance to stop on the street and speak with former Bank of Canada Governor David Dodge. He was the equilavent of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
No bodyguards, no entourage, no convoy of bulletproof vehicles to contend with.
Just said "good morning Mr. Dodge", and he stops and strikes up a short conversation.

I'll try to keep you up-to-date on other interesting happenings downtown.
In particular, I'm looking forward to seeing the 1958 Mercedes 190SL that sometimes parks outside the office!
