The challenge for week 7:
I've played with Google Maps (and their neat street views) a few times before at work - and sometimes for work (assisting customer's in finding locations, directions, etc.). This is the first time I've used Google Maps for my research, and I found a few interesting tidbits...
I first decided to google Arnprior District and Memorial Hospital (in Arnprior, McNab twp., Renfrew co., Ontario, CAN), where I was born. I found myself in luck - with a street view of the building (and the World War I cenotaph visible in front of the building):

(my grandparents' house!)
After we left Cobalt, I remember riding the train (the Northlander, which was a 10 hour trip) to visit them, and arriving at this station (when it was still the station) at night. The train is still my favourite way to travel.
