Noted architect Gordon Wynn once said of Edmonton "there is more opportunity [here] than anywhere else in Canada. The architect will need to play a big part in the development of this area." . This certainly proved to be true. Following the 1947 oil discovery in Leduc, Edmonton became an epicentre of development. Young locals and European refugees brought new design ideas to the table and every new building constructed furthered the city's architectural pallet. Landowners scrambled to demolish old, outdated and stuffy Edwardian buildings to replace them with sleek new facades in hopes of attracting many of the city's newly arrived companies. . One such example would be the Empire Block. Located at 10084 Jasper Avenue, the building had been standing since 1905. Considered the city's premier office building when it was first constructed, it had served valiantly. However it was nearing 60 years of age, suffered a serious fire in 1942 and was succumbing to sagging floors. Occupying a prime piece of real estate at the literal centre of town, the Block's owner and original developer, McDougal & Secord Ltd. decided to replace it with a new, modern tower. . Construction commenced in 1962. Ready for occupancy by July of the following year the tower was a stunner. Clad in polished, 2 million year old Minnesotan pink granite, it would become one of the city's first modern office towers. Comprised of eleven floors of office space, it would also feature several large retail units, important to resecuring tenants such as Tamblyn Drugs. A distinctive porcelain band is located at the top, while the principle facades make use of a fairly unique pattern effect. . The Empire Building continues to stand as one of Edmonton's most standout modernist buildings and an important reminder to the city's growth and modernization in the post-war era. It is listed on the city's Inventory of Historic Resources. . Included are two historic pictures of the original Empire Block, the building this one replaced. The second shows the building's rough state just prior to its demolition.

Sunrises are prettier as you go away from the equator. I realized that ever since I moved to Edmonton and there is a science behind it. Lights of smaller wavelength, such as violent, indigo and blue, get scattered off as they have to cross a larger part of the atmosphere near the poles than at the equator (because of the spherical shape of the Earth; I'm assuming you know and believe that the Earth is spherical!). Hence, what we are left with is deep red, orange and yellow tones, which are the lights with longer wavelengths much to the delight of our eyes! In short? Travel north if you are a fan of sunrises and sunsets! Go beyond The Wall if that is what it takes! #yeg#travelalberta#yeggers#weareyeg#exploreedmonton#urbanyeg#str#tbt#tbtphoto#instagramers#instagramer#instahub#instagold#instafollow#instapic#ig_snapshots#lonelyplanet#igers#igersoftheday#insta#instamania#bbctravel#natgeo#cnntravel#natgeo#albertacanada#alberta#edmonton#dailyviewalberta#dailyview#dailyviewedmonton

The Cantin Apartments is just one of several Great Depression-era apartment conv
The Cantin Apartments is just one of several Great Depression-era apartment conversions still standing in the Oliver area. . Located at 10011 115 street, this building was originally constructed in 1924 as a single family dwelling. Originally belonging to Mr. William G. Parson, a branch manager for McLaughlin Motors, it would subsequently be occupied by Charles R. Freeman two years later. Like Pearson, Freeman, a department manager for the T. Eaton Company, would only remain two years before moving. Following him would be a slew of other occupants that came and went until 1939. . That year the building would be purchased by Arthur J. Cantin Sr., an electric and gas inspector for the Dominion Government. Cantin would turn the simple home into a modern apartment block, adding two new additions, one to the front and one to the back, while also subdividing the space. This practise proved to be popular during the Depression and even more so in Oliver. By turning one home into what was essentially six, Cantin was able to maximize his potential rent earnings. . Cantin's additions shows Art Moderne elements, popular at the time. A simplified form of the well loved Art Deco style, its emphasis on horizontal massing, flat roof, and speed lines are all present on this diminutive building. As is common with the style, it is clad in an earthy coloured stucco. . The Apartments new tenants included; W.O. Parlee, N.A. Fallow, Howard T. Emery, W.H. Power and Mr. Cantin himself. All five had a mix of interesting professions; one was a provincial clerk, another the proprietor of the Koffee Korner and one was a founder of the law firm Newell, Lindsay, Emery & Ford. . The Cantin is now dwarfed by much larger buildings but continues to function much in the same way 70 years later. It is not listed on the City's Inventory of Historic Resources.

McDougall United is the city's oldest congregation and is named for its founder,
McDougall United is the city's oldest congregation and is named for its founder, an important Methodist missionary. . Reverend George McDougall, arrived in the Northwest Territories in 1860. Chairman of the area's Methodist mission, McDougall travelled widely throughout present-day Alberta, establishing settlements and proselytizing to various First Nations tribes. Migrating westward he would eventually reach Fort Edmonton in 1871. . For the next two years he would preach in the surrounding area but in 1873 decided to construct a permanent church. It would be the first building to be located outside the fort's walls. Only three years after its construction however McDougall would pass. He would later be remembered, quite racistly, as being beloved by both "white and red man alike" and would be instrumental to helping the indigenous negotiate both Treaties 6 and 7. Despite his death McDougall's church would live on, ministered by his son. . As Edmonton grew so did the congregation and by the turn of the century their old church proved to be insufficient. Plans for a new building were made and in 1909 a building permit was granted. Their new church would be designed by prominent architect Herbert Alton Magoon. Constructed in the Italianate style it would feature room for 1600 people at estimated completion cost of $70,000. Its cornerstone would be laid on April 21, 1910 and by the following November was finally ready for church goers. . The church would see its heyday in the late 1940's where mass was often so busy it was restricted to standing room only. However subsequent decades brought dwindling congregation numbers and by the millennium the church was beginning to show its age. Years of further neglect caught up and by 2014 it seemed as though the building would be demolished. . Thankfully in 2015 both the City and Province stepped in. The congregation, originally vehemently opposed to any kind of historical designation, reluctantly agreed to both a municipal and provincial heritage status, receiving roughly $1.5 million for basic restoration and stabilization costs. It is estimated that another $15 million will be needed to full restore the building.

This modernist building once housed the city's first Simpson-Sears Department St
This modernist building once housed the city's first Simpson-Sears Department Store. . Simpson-Sears started life as a joint venture between the United States based Sears, Roebuck & Company and the Canadian based Robert Simpson Company. The deal allowed the primarily Eastern based Simpson's to expand its mail order catalog to other parts of the country, while allowing Sears an easy entrance into the Canadian market. . In 1957 the company would make its debut in Edmonton opening in the newly constructed Park Plaza shopping centre. Upon its opening the store would bring a new kind of shopping format to the city, one that was exclusively suburban. As opposed to Eaton's, Woodward's, the Hudson's Bay, and S.S. Kresge's, Simpson-Sears did not develop a downtown flagship, instead opting to focus on a model pioneered by their American parent company; targeting underserved but rapidly growing subdivisions. Furthering this model they would open another suburban store in Bonnie Doon the following year. . Their Park Plaza store was a stark departure from the city's traditional department stores. Featuring clean modernist detailing, the store makes use of buff and sand pink brick, as well as contrasting stone accents. It also featured a fully fledged service station and sizeable parking lot, great perks to the auto-centric suburbanites it catered to. Unfortunately no architect is listed for this building. . Only nineteen years after their grand opening the company would leave their store. Opting to move into the recently completed Kingsway Mall, Sears Canada would sell the building to the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. It is now known as the Engineering Technology Annex. . The former Simpson-Sears is now dwarfed on nearly all sides by NAIT's much larger buildings. A unique building with in interesting connection to the city's retail heritage, it could eventually be under threat of demolition as NAIT continues to expand. It is not listed on the City's Inventory of Historic Resources.

An odd remnant to the city's police history lies next to the Winspear Centre; the date stone of their former headquarters. . Long operating out of tiny building conjoined to Fire Hall No. 1, the Edmonton Police Department set out to construct a new headquarters in 1931. Ready by the following year, the new striped classical building was designed by City Architect John Martland. For the next three decades it would be the department's base of operation. . In 1962 the police department would leave, moving half a block west into the recently renovated Civic Block. Ownership would be transferred to the City and for the next several decades it would operate as the Municipal Court House. . By the 1980's the court house would close. For years plans would circulated on just what to do with it and the Civic Block. Ultimately both would be sold and subsequently demolished to make way for the construction of the Francis Winspear Centre in 1995.
