The Nash


The Nash

The National Hotel was a landmark watering hole back in the day. The three storey structure was constructed in 1907 and was once owned by A.E. Cross (one of the Big Four, the founders of the Calgary Stampede) as an outlet for products from his Calgary Brewing and Malting Company, six blocks down Ninth Avenue. The building has long been the subject of condo project/renovation which has since been stalled. It is now home only to a family of birds, one who is just arriving to feed the nestlings. The yellow brick is unusual in Calgary architecture, and I liked the red brick accents.

In the best light…
