Photographer's Note

The Ceremonial Guard can be seen each morning in downtown Ottawa, marching from the Cartier Square Drill Hall to Parliament Hill. An average of 3000 tourists line the streets daily to watch what has become a popular attraction, a tradition dating back to 1959
The Ceremonial Guard is made up of two of Canada’s most historic regiments: the Governor General’s Foot Guards (who wear red plumes in their Bearskin caps) and the Canadian Grenadier Guards (who wear white plumes). The band of the Ceremonial Guard is composed of selected musicians from military bands and music schools from across Canada.
