City Works Garage: 0050.0020

PHOTO (Courier photo)

                A landmark of Cranbrook has fallen to the bulldozers, trucks and crowbars of the wreckers.  The city works garage was toppled by East Kootenay Salvage Ltd. and the old Public Library Commission was demolished by city works crews.  The structures were demolished to pave the way for construction of the Cranbrook Collonade, originally scheduled to begin this month.  However, construction costs 25 per cent above estimates have forced the Calgary developers to go to tender and they may not now get started, they warn, before Spring.
