DOWNTOWN

Some of these are likely too new to be considered.

Feel free to post photos or discuss heritage in the downtown area (West downtown, Eau Claire, central core, Chinatown, East Village) in this thread.

hi
i am looking for skyline photos of City of Calgary taken from crescent heights in 1983
the company i work for is celebrating its 30th anniversary and i have a photo of the present skyline from crescent heights .
i would like to frame both photos as a comparison of how the city landscape has changed over the 30 yr period from the same vantage point.
black and white or sepia tone, just about anything would do for comparison.
I really didnt think this would be such a task so any help would be good

Found these photos on Glenbow Archives. They're taken from the air, and date to 1985.

No problem!
You can also purchase really high resolution images of those photos from the Glenbow Archives on their website. Costs around $20-$30, and takes a few days to process.
