    This is the former centre block of the Canadian Parliament Buildings. With the exception of the parliamentary library (the conical rooftop seen in the rear of the building), it was completely desstroyed by a fire on February 2, 1916. A new and larger centre block was rebuilt on the same site. It was completed in 1928. In the meantime, Parliament met at the National Museum, located at the other end of Metcalfe Street.
