    Where in Calgary #17

    So it appears that some beyond members have a good photographic memory as made evident by them figuring out (to easily IMO) the past few threads I've put up.

    This one, it will be more difficult but if you've got a keen eye and have traveled down the road on which this house sits (which many of you have), then you will have noticed that it sticks out like a sore thumb. Why you might ask - probably because this home was built in 1910 while everything around it was built in the late 1950's to early 1960's. (read smaller bungalows and duplexes). This home was probably an original farm homestead that the city grew out towards and for whatever reason, this old house never got bulldozed and rebuilt when the community around it was developed.

    As far as a clue or two, it is situated within 10km of the "Where in Calgary #16" thread location and is a comfortable 20 minute or so walk from what many would consider a very trendy neighborhood in Calgary...

    Magic.


    I actually live pretty close to that house and I believe one of my Dads buddies used to live in it years ago. Pictures looked like it could be the house that I was picturing in my mind so all it took was a little Google street view to confirm

    Totally.

    I had no idea that house was so old though. Pretty cool.
