(Old) Dominion Bank Building

(Old) Dominion Bank Building
714 1st Street SE, Calgary.

Partial quote from this link:
www.historicplaces.ca/en/rep-reg/place-lieu.aspx?id=8975

"The Dominion (Toronto Dominion) Bank building in downtown Calgary is an early twentieth-century, three-storey sandstone and marble building with a terra cotta facade. A modern fourth storey has been added to the building. Its symmetrical front facade, columns and entablature embody the Beaux-Arts style. It is located on the corner of Eighth Avenue and First Street, SE, beside Calgary's Olympic Plaza and on the historic Stephen Avenue Mall.

The heritage value of the Dominion (Toronto Dominion) Bank building lies in its architectural significance as an example of a large Beaux-Arts building on one of Calgary's historic streetscapes. It also possesses significance for its historical association with the expansion of national banks into Alberta in the pre-First World War era."
