Historic Walks of Edmonton takes a unique look at the historically significant landmarks of Alberta's capital city, from the downtown core to nearby residential areas, from breathtaking river valley vistas to intimate neighborhoods. It also includes parklike settings, featuring University of Alberta and Edmonton Cemetery tours.
One of the most enjoyable ways to experience a city is to absorb its history and its
stories during walks through its commercial area and residential neighborhoods. Packed
with historical and architectural descriptions and interesting anecdotes, this book of
urban walking tours provides a low-tech, healthy and educational alternative to
becoming a couch potato. Includes over 200 contemporary and archival photographs.
