It's 1923 and this new fireproof brick building is going up quickly, replacing its 'burned to the ground' predecessor. This was the story for essentially this whole block in 1923, as fire had taken out most of it.

It seems that, back when prohibition was in force in Canada, few people were actually above procuring a little alcohol when the mood struck them. One of those was one of the initial owners of this building, at the time a town councillor.

The place where the miners obtained their 'Bridge Brew, this, in their minds, may be the most valuable historic building in the town. The fact that it was the first commercial building in The Pass built of stone doesn't hurt, though.

Once a courthouse always a courthouse doesn't hold true for Blairmore's Courthouse. Built as much a jail and police detachment as a courthouse, it has since been abandoned in favour of newer digs and today is part of a technological school campus.

This substantial brick bank building, not terribly large, two storeys in height, rectangular in plan and having tasteful and somewhat muted decorative touches on the façade is, like many early small town banks, fairly easy to identify as such.

Another small town in the Crowsnest, and another Burns Meat Market. We shouldn't be surprised, as Pat Burns built over 100 of them in small towns in western Canada; he even supplied meat to the Klondike.
