 The ‘Ledge’

Edmonton heritage

The Legislature Grounds are Stunning!
One of Edmonton’s most used areas, and one of my favorite places, is the legislative grounds. The Ledge is iconic in Edmonton with its domed roof and spire raised over the downtown, and is visible from across the river to the south, down 108th Street and from the east as well. The Legislature Building is situated on 23 HA of parkland that represents a history going back to the late 1800′s when these grounds were a 5-hole golf course.

Gourmet Cafe – Special place for birthday selebration
It was our 35th anniversary and I wanted to take my wife out, to a special place for dinner. Bistro Praha poped in my mind and decision was easy to make. It was, and continues to be, a crossroads of the city’s arts crowd, of Euro-ethnicity, a place for a full dinner or a late-evening glass of bubbly.

 Historic Hostelry – Transit Hotel

Historic Hostelry
I heard people say: ‘If you see this hotel in your sights, run the other directions!’ I agree this place is a total dump. It stinks with spilled brews, totally unclean and serves too many risky patrons. I was terrified of this place, but it was declared a Historical Site and nothing could be done through the years to convince the Transit Management to make improvements.

Edmonton statues
Today I visited Edmonton’s outdoor statues and photographed them. I present them here in the order that I photographed them. The scary thing is that I knew only three of those people.

The majority of surviving heritage structures were born at about the same time as Edmonton itself. This means that most have just reached, or are about to reach their centenary soon.
