I love that old pic of Centre Street Bridge. That's awesome.

One thing that stands out so much to me, is how few trees there were in Calgary back then.

Agree! I don't know what it is, but no matter the economic class a person was in, everyone just seemed more classy and presentable, especially in public. Men were always in suits and fedoras whether they were attending a sporting event or running errands. Even the working class construction workers are wearing collared button up shirts. Now you go into a Walmart and people are walking around in their pajamas with nacho cheese stains and it looks like they haven't showered in days.
