Here's one taken by the cyclone...the original YMCA, and the first indoor swimming pool in Saskatchewan.

I believe that is Sacred Heart school/rectory in that picture. Located on Elphinstone just north of Dewdney.

I wasn't aware of his sexual preferences before, but I guess it's a interesting piece of information to know...

In any case, yeah, he was one of the main people behind where the capital was eventually located, and it was a scandal because he chose the place where he owned a lot of land instead of going with one of the already established communities.

I make my share share as well... sometimes you just have to laugh if your typo spells out a completely wrong word.

Haha, yes... sorry... When I read that post, there was no way I could pass that one up.

In any case, as far as heritage Regina goes... it still makes me sad the sheer amount of heritage buildings that were demolished to build the Cornwall. That was probably one of the richest areas of the city that was pretty much entirely steamrolled for a new downtown mall... even though at the time there already was one (The Galleria, which of course is no longer a mall... since Cornwall killed it).

You must provide the source link for any photo that is not yours.

Because then you are taking credit for a photo, you potentially did not take. Copyright infringement.

What happened to the old City Hall building? Looked cool.

I said all photos were stolen. I have posted stolen photos on numerous forums, never had a problem. I can get the links if it is really necessary.


As for the Gingerbread house City Hall, it was torn down after sitting vacant for a couple years to build a mall. Sometime in the 60's I believe.

Haha, well it's still copyright infringement. An artist wouldn't steal another artists' painting and announce that he stolen it, but still try to claim it as his own. I really don't see what the big deal is on these forums either. I guess it's just easier to source them than to have a photographer get upset (potential lawsuit?! :o ) over their images being used without their consent, or proper recognition been given.

What year was the RCMP church built? The Marr Residence is the oldest building in Saskatoon which is still on it's original site. It was built in 1884. The oldest building in Saskatoon (not on original site) is the Trounce House, built in 1883.
I hope I don't get attacked for mentioning the Marr Residence and Trounce House. I realize it's Regina heritage, I just think it's interesting for comparisons sake.

Found a few little Regina interesting facts(http://www.saskschools.ca/~gregory/sask/regina5.html), including what you wanted to know about the chapel.It looks like we did have you beat, for a year or two haha.

OLDEST BUILDING IN REGINA
The RCMP Chapel is Regina's oldest building. It was built in 1883 and was used as a mess hall. In 1885 it was damaged in a fire, was rebuilt and used as a chapel. Services are still held at the chapel.

OLDEST BUILDING DOWNTOWN
St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral on 12th Avenue and McIntyre is the oldest building in downtown Regina. It was built in 1894 and is still in use.

FIRST MOVIE THEATRE
The first movie theater in Regina was a tent! In 1906 Barney Groves set up a black tent at Broad Street and 10th Avenue.

FIRST SKYSCRAPER
In 1912-1913 the McCallum-Hill Building was built. It was the tallest building in the city (ten-storeys). The building was located downtown on Scarth Street and contained offices. On October 31, 1982 the building was demolished (in six seconds) and the twin towers were built (McCallum-Hill Towers).

A FOUNTAIN FROM ENGLAND
The Trafalgar fountain which is east of the Legislative Building came from London, England. It is made of red granite from Scotland and is set in a pool. The fountain once stood in Trafalgar Square in London from 1848 to 1939.

A NICKEL FOR A RIDE
In 1911 Regina had 4 streetcars and 10 miles of track. It cost five cents per trip. Two years later there were more tracks, 34 streetcars and 150 people working for the Regina Municipal Railway.


It's too bad they tore down that Mcallum-Hill tower!
