Take a tour of the Firestone Home with O.J. and Isobel Firestone in this news footage from May 11, 1973!
In this digitized 16mm film reel, collectors O.J. and Isobel Firestone lead a tour both inside and outside their home at 375 Minto Place in Rockcliffe Park.
This video is currently featured in our exhibition (Re)Collecting the Group of Seven: Celebrating 100 Years, which displays key works by the Group of Seven from the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art (FCCA) and provides a unique look at the mid to late twentieth-century collecting activities of the Firestone family in Ottawa.
