POSTCARD

Date: Not evident. Unposted

Publisher / Photographer: Unidentified

Notation: This view was likely taken from the south west side of the Legislative Building. The giant ski jump ran south to north, parallel to (and right beside) Osborne Street.

It is interesting that they chose to build it over that building. In fact, the slide rested, in part on the roof of that building. Perhaps that added stability to the structure. I don't know the building, but wonder if it was possibly left over from when Fort Osborne Barracks occupied the site?
