Calgary’s Urban History II: Photos


mC:t    2015.03.23

This is the second edition of historical photos and overlays that I have put together to illustrate Calgary’s history and development over the last century.

The first photos are from Calgary’s earliest years when the town was based around the CPR tracks.

It is interesting to see how quickly Calgary grew from its original structure (Fort Calgary) to the small town by the 1890’s.
