    Seriously, give it a bit more height, cap it, and lets move Edmonton Ski Club there :P

    Man CWB Tower looks tall in that photo.

    Hijack of the thread for more than one photo from early spring of 1978.



    The Walterdale Bridge was, of course, originally two way. And at the north end was a traffic circle, back when boats were still common on the road.





    From Connors Hill, the Oxford Tower (now designated the MNP Tower) is under construction. The VW van is pumping at least 50 hp up the hill. Gear down!

    Ah, the gold car. Had to be '71 to '73, based on the side trim strip.

    Black one could be a Monte Carlo but I still say the back end is too long for the one in the photo. I'll have to blow it up.

    I enjoy it. I've lived in Oliver for 5 years now.

    Having the river valley right outside my door is awseome.

    The only thing I hate are the garbage trucks slamming the bins as the empty them at 6:45am

    pretty sure the black one would be a late 60's/early 70's mercury (ford) cougar...

    Just a hobby for fun. Learning something every time I take the camera out. I think carrying a camera around with a purpose to shoot something really gives you motivation to explore your surroundings. In my case - our city. Since I started shooting about two years ago, I've found sound interesting spots around town. It's definitely a good way to go exploring and find hidden gems of the city. You see the city on a different level and appreciate the city a whole a lot more when you're looking through the viewfinder ...for me anyhow.

    The sky comments was for that red sky by Stevey_G. It just not local photos from the our area that have shown beyond unique looks, but I have observed photos from all over the world where people are sharing my sentiments. The last three or four years people are seeing incredible images which are not normal to them.

    I wasn't aware of that. I pay more attention to the sky than I used to because of the photography but I can't say it's different that it was.

    Thanks Ed! To be honest with you I've been watching the skies for a very 22 years, basically as long as my parents would let me go out to the valley alone at all hours. I have to say this phenomena is fairly common. High elevation ceiling for clouds, dust being kicked up by the combines at harvest, and the perfect timing of a sunrise with gentle under exposure to bring out more definition in the clouds is what accounts for this - that's not to say this didn't look this way because it very much did.

    We just pay attention more now And that's a good thing - because the world around us does pretty spectacular albeit fleeting things.

    Funny story. I have been mugged in two places in Edmonton: The side street next to the old Bay building on Jasper, and the park shown in the above photograph, both incidents taking place within a year of each other.

    I first arrived in Korea a few weeks after the second incident. During my first half-year here, I wandered into a book store and came across a travel guide for Canada, written in Korean. The Edmonton section had only two pictures. The old Bay building on Jasper, and the historical schoolhouse in that park.

    Thanks. I used to live right on that street, but I wasn't quite recognizing the houses. I think maybe the view of the CWB building threw me off a little.

    Perhaps, perhaps not. The Pantages was renamed The Strand Theatre, and survived until it was (stupidly) demolished to make way for the IPL (Enbridge) Tower in 1979.

    I don't have any specific living memory of it either, but I sure wish I did.

    Not technically neon, but so stunning. Such presence. Outshines the neon that came later both literally and figuratively.

    I suppose we can't technically call it the Neon Wall of Fame or Museum anymore though. How about the "Dead Signs Society"?

    One year and 13 days later...ive been unable to get a sunset shot from this vantage bc of the weather lately. not going to complain. keep the rain coming.
    I think May 2017 will bring a less dramatic change in the skyline. May 2018 will have further contrast.

    I love my backyard, and my other backyard, so much green, little pavement and no development... Natural.

    5 minutes away on bike from the river valley, no different that my residences around downtown and Oliver...

    Did you know that the river valley extends beyond the reaches of downtown? It actually goes from the deep SW all the way up to the NE...

    It's not just downtown's backyard... as you frequently refer to it... And you don't need to live downtown to be in close proximity to it either...

    Boys; stop, you can BOTH marry me!

    Yeah that river valley she's a beast. I suggest y'all go check it out down by Genesee. I love our urban playground by the city can't compare with the caves, sandy beaches, islands, and predators of that area. (and by predators I mean bears and cougars, not hillbillies.)

    Speaking of rivers. Anyone down to go on a river float??

    In this park x10 every week, great little doggy spot. Neat to have the first Edmonton(?) school there too.
