Old Temiskaming & Northern Ontario Railroad Head Office



Here's the ONR's former head office. The building was designed by architect Henry (Harry) Westlake Angus of London, Ontario. The ONR was originally called the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railroad when it was created in 1902 by an act of Parliament.

The building now houses ONTERA, the telecommunications subsidiary of the ONR.

Happy 4th of July to our friends from the south!
