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.

This is the Train Station at Fort Edmonton Park. The park is a Historical Romp through the city of Edmonton's 100 or so year history, You can see thinks like the first mosque to be built in Canada, a fully operational turn of the century hotel that is open year round. The hotel also has a Bar serving locally brewed beer. There is a converted steam train and a few trolley cars as well.
Lastly the park is also featuring a 1920's midway. I have more pics of that to come.

These are exceptional captures. Not easy to get right, but you have got this spot on. The rain is so animated. Brilliant.
