    Default 80s/90s aesthetics in Calgary

    Hey guys, I'm compiling a photo series of the remaining 80s/90s (early 90s to be specific) themed things/places in Calgary. It looks like buildings of this era continue to be remodeled to keep up with newer trends.

    Anyways, I posted this to seek help from the community. If anyone knows of any places, buildings etc that are predominantly themed/built or have the aesthetic appeal of the 1980s or early 90s, please respond with your suggestions!

    Currently I have:

    Northland Mall
    Westbrook Mall
    Northhill Mall
    McDonald's 17th Ave SE

    I would really truly appreciate any other suggestions you guys/gals have! Thank you

    Go into any neighborhood built in that era... there's lots of them in Calgary. You'll find houses, churches, rec centres, commercial buildings, etc that are still original.

    the first bankers hall was completed in '89

    I assume he reno'd it during the late 80's early 90's when oil prices recovered and Alberta's economy started to surge.

    Have never been in the oil/gas industry, any jobs I've had have been very insulated from that industry.

    Any fast food (Dairy Queen) with the sunglass eating section.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."
