We took a step back in time at Fort Edmonton Park in
July 2009. When you get through the entrance you can hop on an old train that takes you to the Fort. From there you go by foot
through the rest of the park and step back in time from
1846 to 1929.
I'll just let you scroll down through the pictures as there are
a lot of them. It was a cool summer day and it drizzled a lot.
I didn't notice the raindrops in the round barn photos of my
last post until I looked at it closely. :)
Living quarters in the fort. Notice the traditional Hudson's Bay blanket on the top bunk
and the red with black bands on the bottom bunk.
Inside the fort.
A street scene from the 1890's.
Another street scene from the 1920's with a street car.
As you walked through the streets you could visit any of the
homes or businesses and see how life was in that particular era.
A peak behind some buildings. The round barn is in the middle and the white building
on the right is a church.
Wouldn't you love to have a soda at this drug store?
I hope you enjoyed a little peek at Fort Edmonton Park.
If you are ever in the Edmonton, Alberta area it is a must see.
It will take you at least 2 hours to walk through depending on
what you want to see. You can stay all day! Wear comfortable
shoes and dress for the weather.
