First Baptist Church (North Side Location – 102 Street and 102 Ave)

I was asked to identify the church in this image by a Facebook fan and found it to be an interesting experience. I immediately suspected it to be the old church at 102 street and 102 ave but was perplexed when I checked the name of this church on my map dataset and found it was the First Baptist Church. I knew this church also showed up on my map dataset on the south side. I checked the Henderson Directories and 1915 was the first result I looked at. It showed the church to be on the south side as I suspected, so I looked at the address of every church for that year. None matched this spot. At that point I went back to my map dataset and clicked on the house nearby that had 1911 census data. It showed a Baptist minister. At this point I decided to go back to the Hendersons and look at earlier years. When I looked at 1910 I found the First Baptist Church at 2nd Street and Athabasca Ave (102 street and 102 ave). Success! 🙂

Today, the church is gone (a YMCA sits there now) but the Ross Bros building remains (expanded) nearby on 103 street…
