Week 35

Did you know that upon founding in 1905, Coaldale had a different street numbering system than today?

 Today                                    1905

20th St (HWY 845)             First Ave

19th St                                   Second Ave

18th St                                   Third Ave

17th St                                   Fourth Ave

20th Ave (Main)                 Main St

19th Ave                               Railway St or Chinese Alley

 The first business blocks were comprised of blocks 7,8,9, and 10 (on attached map).  Each block was divided into lots with a frontage of 25 feet and depth around 150 feet, all of which could be subdivided.

 Share your selfie. Our Owl is set up at ATB 1821 20 Ave until Sept 16 and then he will be on the move again.
