Aerial view of Downtown Edmonton 1970
This is my favorite photo of 'old' downtown Edmonton. The AGT Towers at top center (now ATB Financial and Telus House) are complete, Edmonton House at top right is under construction as is the James MacDonald Bridge on the North Saskatchewan River. The old post office with it's iconic clock tower is still there on 100th Street as is the shopping district along 101st Street with Woodward's, Eaton's, the Metropolitan and SS Kresge's department stores. The WW Arcade hardware store is visible at the top of 97th Street at upper left and the Dreamland Theater just across Jasper Avenue. Memories..
