The building in Calgary’s Victoria Park neighbourhood, long in a state of disrepair, was the last remaining Queen Anne Revival-style home in the city. It had been slated to be part of an area revitalization project called the Rivers District.
The building burned in a two-alarm fire on Feb. 2, 2019, and was subsequently demolished.
Today marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. In Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the U.K., the poppy has become the symbol of remembrance of fallen soldiers in all wars. The poppy was first used in this way by the American Legion, inspired by the poem In Flanders Fields by Canadian Lt.-Col John McCrae. The poppies in the photo above were spotted in bloom at Riley Park in Calgary, back in August.
