A little break from posting on the Mid-Century Modern Ottawa Blog

Hello Mid-Century Modern Ottawa Blog readers, It has been a while since I have posted on the blog, but I have not forgotten about my readers! Sadly, I have been struggling with a diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This is the second time I have had the same cancer, as I beat it 7 years ago. This time the battle will be different and more complicated with both chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. Once again I will fight with determination and will not back down. Cancer will not beat me. I will survive and become even stronger than before! This week I begun phase 1 of chemotherapy, which will last a few months, before the stem cell transplant procedure. So, I will be taking a break from posting on the blog, but I hope you all continue to discover all of the many different pages and continue to share your thoughts, comments and stories! Once I have beat cancer again, I will be ready to share more posts! Thanks for reading, Saul Svirplys

Most of Riverside Park South was built by Campeau over many years during the 1960s, so there is a broad collection of designs that they offered over time. Below is a series of plans built in
