Jasper Ave – 1940s & 2010s

Jasper Ave underwent many drastic changes in the latter half of the 20th century. Amongst the greatest losses were structures such as the Hotel Selkirk (which was demolished in the 1970s after a major fire) and the other heritage buildings on Jasper Ave between 101 and 102 Street.

Well, here is a glimpse at what once was…complete with two of Edmonton’s old streetcars.
