Edmonton’s downtown

From “Connect2 Edmonton”
I’m planning a historic walk in Downtown Edmonton between Robertson-Wesley United Church and the Hotel Macdonald, as these are the sites of my upcoming wedding ceremony and reception, respectively, in autumn of this year. dsc_1921First Edmonton Public school 
Basically, it’ll be a nice way for attendees to kill an hour between the two. I’m into local history and love sharing it with people. I just took the photos for the proposed walk, and thought I’d share it with you all!

The route is a hybrid of a couple of different historical walks I’ve seen. I’ve made a Google Map of it. All of these photos are available at my Flickr album.

This route was timed at a shade under one hour. There’s some decent housing stock of a similar age in Grandin to run them past, but not with the same ‘residential’ atmosphere.
