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.

104 Street

104 St is located in the heart of the warehouse district. In the late 90's it was 4 blocks of vacant buildings except for a gay night club at one end and the Cecil hotel at the other. The Cecil was later shut down to health code reasons so that tells you what kind of place it was.
Today the street is full of funky shops and is home to the DT farmers market in the warmer months. Condos have sprung up in the form of lofts and high rises.
This shot looks North up the street along side the Revlon building.
