Peace Tower, Ottawa (Canada)

The Peace Tower also known as the Tower of Victory and Peace is a focal bell and clock tower sitting on the central axis of the Centre Block of the Canadian parliament buildings in Ottawa Ontario. The present incarnation replaced the 55-meter Victoria Tower after the latter burned down in 1916 along with most of the Centre Block only the Library of Parliament survived. It serves as a Canadian icon and had been featured prominently on the Canadian twenty-dollar bill directly adjacent to the queens visage until the change to the polymer.
