Calgary Public Library is pleased to let you know about the newest addition to the Community Heritage and Family History Digital Library: The City of Calgary Heritage Inventory Collection. This collection is the result of a partnership with the City’s Calgary Heritage Authority and intends to document items on the City of Calgary’s Inventory of Evaluated Historic Sites. It is located on the Calgary Public Library Website in the Community Heritage and Family History Digital Library under the Books and More tab.
These photographs are an important part of the historic resource documentation process. They can enable future interested researchers access to detailed building information that might otherwise be lost, particularly if the building has been demolished. The initial collection, by local photographers James McMenamin and Michael Knudsen, offers a detailed look at three important buildings in Calgary’s history: The Harvey Block (since demolished), The Barron Building and Eamon’s Bungalow Camp.
