Where I can find informations, pictures (including old pictures) about/with Edmonton and Calgary? I'm intrested in the period up to 1965. Is there any list of intresting buildings (mansions, halls, stores) gone during the "renewal" of the cityes (when it comes to buildings, I'm intrested in the post 1965 period too).

Are you ONLY interested in older pictures from Edmonton and Calgary? Winnipeg has a lot more historical photos and current old arcitecture than both Edmonton and Calgary combined.

For starters, you can check out this thread on the skyscraper forum, tons of historical pics of Winnipeg in there showing off our architectural history.

For Edmonton, look up:

Tegler Building
Old Post Office
Old Eatons Distribution Centre

I was looking for a house with an arhitecture like this for my story.
