Yeah that's probably not it, the city states it as built in '29. It does have some similar features though. The archival photos I was looking at were that of Keith Ewart who had a note that it may be the GTP depot but he wasn't sure himself.

On this topic I did come across some interesting info related to the Grand Trunk/Chateau Qu'appelle:

this home
https://goo.gl/maps/VsuQZJzbSzN2

and this home
https://goo.gl/maps/3QTDgZed9Bw

were both constructed for James Kirkpatrick, superintendent of the GTP depot on College Ave with materials intended for the hotel.

and these rowhouses
https://goo.gl/maps/oBCA2XGyxUQ2

were built as housing for the construction workers of the hotel.

The history of buildings has always been attractive to me and I read a lot about the buildings of different cities and architectural creations. I study in College and spend a lot of time reading historical facts. But unfortunately I do not know how to formulate my thoughts with talent. I have some experience on historical research paper and I think to ask for help in the service Copycrafter.net to write a full research paper on "Ancient and modern buildings".

Currently reading "Regina: The Queen City" and found this neat story about the naming of Rae, Retallack, Cameron, and Robinson. I'm sure many of you know this story, but I had never heard it and found it quick interesting.

"In October, Scarth had invited a number of prominent people to visit the West in his private car. Included was the famous Arctic explorer, Dr. John Rae, who had already travelled through the Regina area. With a lavish hand, Scarth bestowed local immortality on four of his guests by giving to streets the names of Rae, Retallack, Robinson, and Cameron. Luckily for the future residents of the next street, another friend-Sir Ronald Blennerhassett-did not make the trip!"

There's a post in the Historical Regina Facebook group that explains much of this and includes pictures of most of the namesakes of the original streets. You have to ask to join to view these. According to the Post, all of the original street names were either friends and business partners of Scarth or were Royals or vice-regal.

Does anyone know if a pool was ever proposed or maybe in the original designs for the Hotel Saskatchewan? I’ve always found it odd that it doesn’t have one. And they could make an addition to the back of the hotel easily.

In 1927 it would have been extremely rare to have a pool. I seem to recall that there was a plan as part of the huge 1990's makeover to build a parking garage with pool on the back.

Cook residence narrowly receives heritage status. Thoughts?

Good move. Lien wanted no part of the house; he wanted condos on that corner which wouldn't fit that section of Albert.

It's a bad thing for the city where heritage status can be foisted upon unworthy buildings. It will lead to nothing good. People need to get away from the idea that something will "fit", it's ludicrous to think that a neighbourhood is now a museum.

That said, Lien is a cocky moron who deserves what he gets. Maybe he can sell it to the 87 year old multi-millionaire who offered to buy it from him just cuz'.
