Tony Smyth writes (November 2011):

"I got back from Ottawa at the beginning of the week and thought I’d share these photos with The Pelicans. On Tuesday Oct 25th I met up with Mike O’Callaghan for breakfast, someone I had not seen in almost 25 years. Afterwards we took a nostalgic trip to Vanier, 300, Ave. Pères Blancs, to be precise. The following photos are from that visit.

formerly the ‘new wing’ of the White Fathers’ house.

Inside the community centre is a small museum on the history of Vanier which Mike and visited. Several of the following are photos of WF-related exhibits in the museum.

I’m sure this is remembered fondly by many former students at Eastview.
