"Ottawa Rewind: A Book of Curios And Mysteries" is as much a mystery as a history book. Whimsical and researched, it is the creative work of a restless and curios mind.
Andrew King is an artist, cartoonist and detective. The detective part doesn’t get mentioned often, but Andrew is a history sleuth, someone who loves to solve historical mysteries. Where exactly is the first house built in Ottawa? Was there really a nuclear reactor once at Tunney’s Pasture? And what in the world happened to Ottawa’s once famous tiki bar at the Talisman Inn?
Andrew has been seeking answers to questions like these since launching the popular website Ottawa Rewind in 2013. In Ottawa Rewind Andrew has set out to find the location of shipwrecks in the Ottawa River, the playboy bunnies that once worked the Riverside Hotel in Vanier and every last Free Mason or Knight Templar symbol built into Canada’s Parliament Buildings.
