The Queen of Steven Ave.

Just down the block from the Hyatt, among old sandstones, is this exquisite  red brick building … the L. D. Doll, built in 1907.  It looks like it would’ve been a pharmacy originally, with a beautiful apartment upstairs.  There are the most beautiful windows you ever saw with this bow window being only one of them, and the brickwork and arches and sandstone inlay have created something that must have caused a great deal of pride in it’s day. Calgary would’e been a very beautiful and exciting place in 1907!
