    On December 25th, a special magazine-style edition was published that covered the history of the Edmonton area, the growth of the city, some of the province's cities and what is coming in the future.

    There were over 50 photo engravings in this edition, sadly they are all in some state of overexposure and many are hard to see any detail, including the photo of Premier Rutherford, which is nothing but a solid black oval.

    This is in a different area from the newspapers and can be better viewed by downloading the images and viewing them in an image program that allows zooming in and out without difficulty. Because of the size of the pages, all of them were microfilmed with the the page shot twice, with a top part and a bottom part.

    Front cover:

    The Bulletin - Edmonton, Alta.
    Christmas 1907
    The Bulletin Company Limited
    Edmonton, Alta., Canada

    It's just incredible to keep seeing all the names of people which are now the names of roads, neighbourhoods, and schools. It always affirms to me how important the decisions our leaders make today really are, like the opening of the single Catholic school that became the system then, and the strides being made in international education now.

    I'm also just continually amazed at the looks back to the times of the Fort, which would still be resonating in some people's living memories at that time.

    Thanks to those who built our city then. Their standard holds a high bar for those who do now, and those who will in the future.

    Thanks also to TerryH.

    (Still looking forward to both Stanley Cups. Go Double E! Go Oil!)

    All the best to everyone in 2008 and beyond.

    It's always interesting to see those people from the city's past and how they shaped the city, especially if they were alive at this time. As well, the sense of adventure from many of those newcomers and how they wanted to make the city an international class location.

    Thanks, Jaybee, and have a fantastic 2008 yourself.

    It's looking like I won't be able to continue with this thread. Unfortunately, this time of year, I get a lot of niggardly health problems (headaches and such) which really takes away from spending any time on the keyboard. As well, having a full time job consumes a lot of time when I'm willing to do any typing.

    The big thing about doing this was to show some of the events that may have added to and shaped the city.

    I know there's several people out there that read the posts (averaging about 40 people by my count). Some may even read the stories. Now, there may be someone who might one day pick up on doing this. I'd suggest that they'd either have have enough free time to it (it usually took me 2 or 3 hours to do one day depending on the number of pages and amount of stories in each edition), or get a friend or 2 to help split it up, so that each might do a couple of days a week.

    But, in any event, I'd encourage those to go to the ourfutureourpast site and just read the papers and find out what went on back then leading up to and following events in the city.

    Better picture from a postcard:

    The Woodland Dairy building opened in 1913. I'm not sure if it was in July or earlier. The building was located at 9516-108 Avenue. Not sure when it was torn down but it was replaced by the McCauley Lodge. The story was from page 15 of the July 19th, 1913 Bulletin. http://www.ourfutureourpast.ca/newsp...e=n6tp0816.jpg

    On the 24th, 4 generations of the Ottewell family gather for a family reunion (with photo), a brief note that the school in King Edward Park was completed and would be ready for occupation after vacation (I imagine that this would be the Academy at King Edward which opened on March 9th, 1914 http://www.rewedmonton.ca/content_view2?CONTENT_ID=999), money bylaws for improvements passed by council totaling $2,340,400.69, the construction program was slashed by $1,690,400 leaving mostly only water mains and lateral sewers to be worked on, the base for the Alberta Avenue car line built 18 inches too low.

    BTW, the school on 97th was the Norwood Extension. Not sure when it was torn down but it was a temporary overflow school. The Alberta Avenue Oral History website says the school was on 101st St.. I'm going off the location mentioned in the article (Lot 27, Block 3, Plan 6537U (Norwood Extension plan)). Maybe I'll come across the one on 113th in time.

    I'm not sure what this building was but it was around in 1940 and had possibly both Burrows Motors and Healy Motors next door. Also had the Nite Spot down the street.
