Beauty of a Bank

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L at 27mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/400th – ISO 400

I really love old buildings like this. There are not many of these beauties left in Alberta. I’m not a proper Albertan, so I’m not sure what the story is with all the old buildings. I am assuming they just tore them all down to make way for the new ones. In any case, it is a real shame there are not more like this, because it had a lot of character to a city.

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

  1. Calgary does seem to tear all its old buildings down. There are a few though, and I agree they add charm to the city. I’m trying to figure out what our oldest building is. Is it Fort Calgary? Or that white house in Eau Claire (I think it’s the Barley Mill)? Love your photo Rob. ❤

  2. I know that in Montreal in the 60’s and 70’s old buildings were not ‘cool’ and a lot of those were demolished during that period. One thing also that was done during that period is they covered these old building with new type of finish giving a more modern look. So some of those old building still exist, they are just hiding behind aluminum.
    Banks had a lot of money in those day and they were building some really beautiful buildings

  3. Gorgeous old building! I actually live in a old bank, built in the1880’s. It’s not as big as this one, but the character is all here. The apartment has original wood floors and is 1600 sq. feet. I could never live in a condo after living here!
