From the Archives #002: Albert's Restaurant building (March, 2003)

Perhaps this is as far as I got towards journalistic sketching...

In March 2003, a fire destroyed Albert's Restaurant, a prominent local eating establishment with a quirky and memorable presence on the busy 104 Street & Whyte Avenue intersection. This was what remained a few days after firefighters had put the flame out... with icicles forming everywhere from the water.

Now in its place: a three storey building with (the ubiquitous) Starbucks.

  1. New York Bagel Cafe was my favorite spot during undergrad days (late 80s). Strange to see a Chilis there after the fire.
