Eventually, a compromise was reached that would allow changes while preserving historic features like the exterior carvings and the Tyndall stone. Then, in , the University of Alberta bought the building with help from the City as well as the Provincial and Federal Governments. After extensive renovations that preserved the exterior historical aspects of the lower two levels , Enterprise Square opened in and it has been a part of the downtown revival ever since.
Bremner Sep 5, Running in Edmonton: Archives , Heritage 7 Comments wader 5 years ago When you walk by Enterprise Square and look at the large windows it would seem that they have built in retractable awnings. Are there any pictures with that detail? I had a look through the photographs in our online catalogue and there is one that shows awnings! I always knew there was something hidden in there. Thanks so much for that.
I wonder what their condition is now? I wish we could access larger pictures from the archives. So many places have put their collections on flickr and it would be wonderful to see more of the details. Regarding Flickr, we have considered it but decided that we would rather concentrate our efforts on our catalogue, this blog and our online exhibits. One of the problems with sites like Flickr is the removal of the photographs from their context as a part of a collection.
The images in our online catalogue are linked to the photographer or the person or organization that donated them to the Archives. And we catalogue as much information about the individual images and their collection as we can.
The images were usually saved for a reason and they were donated to the City of Edmonton Archives for a reason. Even the numbering of the photographs can have significance. Archivists try and preserve collections in their original order because, while sometimes it is random, often the order is a reflection of the donor and why they saved these particular images.
Our catalogue is designed to reflect this context as much as is allowed by the medium. Arguably, by highlighting images by subject in this blog the context is lost but the connection to the Archives is still there, as is the potential to find the context through the Archives. Each archives must make its own decision but to us, sites like Flickr are just too removed from us. We chose to concentrate on our catalogue, sacrificing some functionality but preserving context.
But I understand about wanting to see the details. Wader, I may owe you an apology. Did you try and download an image from our catalogue? Caralyn Macdonald, marketing and communications manager of the Calgary Downtown Association, said the project will be a great addition to the downtown core. And a lot of people associate with that corner. Krystyn Gatto, a retail specialist with Colliers International in Calgary, said the location really is the heart of downtown Calgary.
