A fire tore through this bed and breakfast on 10A Street N.W. in Calgary back in April. Since then, a chronicle of its life spanning more than a century has appeared on the plywood covering its front windows. Thanks for the memories, indeed.
Digging (somewhat) deep into the archives for this 2008 image of the 12th Street Bridge in Calgary’s Inglewood neighbourhood … or I should say the old bridge, as this structure was removed from its pilings last month. The bridge, which connected Inglewood with the Calgary Zoo, was damaged in the 2013 flood and a replacement is in the process of being built.
Today, the Rocky Ridge and Tuscany neighbourhoods are just far-flung suburban areas of Calgary. But back in the 1950 and ’60, there was not much around the area, except a lot of open spaces and a service station along the highway to Cochrane.
The Eamon’s Bungalow Camp sign was restored and made part of the Tuscany CTrain station. The garage was put into storage some time ago and purchased for a nominal sum by a group in High River, to be restored and used there.
The photos here were snapped a few days ago.
