Bâtiments temporaires érigés durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale

Mobilized on August 26, 1939—two weeks before Canada declared war on Germany—troops sent to Fort Rodd Hill lived in tents until wooden barracks could be built. Out of more than twenty of these buildings at Fort Rodd Hill, only one remains on-site—the white wooden hut to your left, now public washrooms.
Mobilisés le 26 août 1939 - deux semaines seulement avant que le Canada ne déclare la guerre à l'Allemagne, les soldats stationnés à Fort Rodd Hill ont vécu dans des tentes jusqu'à ce qu'on termine des baraquements en bois. De la vingtaine de bâtiments érigés à Fort Rodd Hill à l'époque, il n'en reste plus qu'un, la baraque en bois blanche qui se trouve à votre gauche et abrite déscormais des toilettes publiques.
