The changing neighbourhood of old South Calgary has many eras to explore. Beginning as streetcar suburb its early days (and later named for the memorable “loop”), the community was changed by the World War 2 military presence, the mid-century boom of suburban growth, and the later “infill boom” that is ongoing to this day. We’ll start at the sandstone King Edward School, a.k.a. cSpace Marda Loop.
This tour is led by Bob van Wegen of the Marda Loop BIA history project and resident historian Harry Sanders.
When: Saturday, August 5, 10 am – Noon
