Help with a book

At the Seniors Centre open house held on September 7, Marianne Wilkinson approached the club for help:

I’m in the process of completing a book about Kanata.  Its title is “The Kanata Concept” and the subheading is “how the community created an award-winning city”.   I’m presently looking for photos or maps that will illustrate parts of the book, particularly ones showing the community in its early years, historic sites/buildings that still exist, and some of the terrain.

If any member of the camera club has photos that would be suitable I’d like to see them and if they are used give credit to the photographer.  If others are willing to take some now of sites that I’d provide I’d do the same, giving credit in the book.
