Edmonton is one of the largest northern urban centers in the world. Located in Canada, Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. The city has a strong history as a trade center, and it served as the last major stop for the Klondikers during the Gold Rush. This is why we Edmontonions call our city "The Gateway to the North"

Please enjoy my perspective of one of of the fastest growing urban areas this side of China.

The High Level Bridge

The High Level Bridge began operation in 1913. It was designed from the outset to accommodate rail, streetcar, automobile and pedestrian traffic. Although the railway no longer uses the upper deck there is a street car that opperates during the summer. The Street car crossing is the the highest river crossing by streetcar in the world.
