Description

"When J.R. Booth left the countryside [for Ottawa] he had only nine dollars in his pocket. Seventy-eight years later, he died leaving a business empire worth million." This book will be especially fascinating for all readers interested in the history of business or the history of Ottawa. In its early days as Bytown, Ottawa was a community of entrepreneurs. Through the stories of eight intriguing businessmen the development of the country's capital is revealed. These capital titans, in working toward their dreams, flavoured the region - and the country - with their strong personalities and opinions. Their legacy is still being felt today.
