Calgary Tower, reprised

A couple of posts ago I wrote about our visit to the Calgary Tower in September.  When my Dad saw the post he mentioned that he had just come across some similar pictures as he was scanning old slides into digital format.  I was curious to see just how much the Calgary skyline has changed over the years, so I got Dad to email me some of his pictures.

Dad sent a few pictures from 1969 and some from the early 80s (1980 and 1981).  Have a look at this gallery to see how drastic the changes have been in the past 30 years.  It is interesting to note that Calgary’s population was about 370,000 in 1969, with a total of about 1.5 million in the province of Alberta.  By 1981 Calgary had grown to about 593,000 population.  Today Calgary has a population of 1,043,000 and the province has grown to over 3.5 million people.
