Cool Old Calgary Steet Map

This is a pretty cool old map of Calgary I liberated from google images. I suspect Lacombe St.(right of the river) is now in Lindsay Park. But I can't see the Holy Hospital so I might be mistaken.

It is easy to see the influence the Catholic Church had in the early part of the century. Lacombe, Grandin and St. Mary's are all names of current High Schools in Calgary. Who knew a 100 years later, homes in this area would sell for as much as a million dollars. A link to the history of Lindsay Park area is here.
