What can I say? The first building on this site went up in smoke when the building next door caught fire. This, the second, is also a wood frame building but has experienced much better luck.

One of four in the Crowsnest, this P Burns Meat Market was purchased from butcher Phil Hart in 1912. Burns' normal modus operandi was to build, not buy, but in this case he likely calculated that eliminating the competition would be to his advantage.
