Camera: Pentax Spotmatic F. York Street, Ottawa.

The Chateau Lafayette House, also known endearingly as The Laf has been around Ottawa since the 1840s, and is the oldest extant pub in Ottawa. It was also a place where an underage drinker could get served in the late 80s/early 90s. Mind you, it wasn't the somewhat gentrified place back then that it is now. It was a rough and tumble sort of place where bikers and the down and out hung out. I can still remember my first quart bottle of Molson X that i drank there when I was 14.
