Houses in South-west Calgary

I’ve noticed that while families have shrunk from eight children a couple of generations ago to two on average today, family houses have grown to more than double the size rather than smaller.

What was special about this part of Calgary was the houses didn’t follow that trend. Most were still cute, well-maintained, realistic sized homes. Many displayed plaques that stated the age of the house and I discovered one after another on rambling walks, all worth photographing.

These two houses were being demolished on my last visit.

What a pity that some of them were being demolished because they added a unique character to the district.
