The Concrete Centenarian is an attempt to preserve the memory of one of Calgary’s most prominent industrial landmarks. On Oct. 16, 2011, a series of explosive charges erased this monolithic structure from Calgary’s skyline forever.
One thing Calgary’s Canadian Government Elevator would not outlive, however, is the Canadian dream. The dream to live a better, longer, more prosperous life has driven the average Canadian to new heights.
Concrete Centenarian is the story of Calgary’s Government Elevator. It is the story of the people who built, operated, and eventually demolished this great building. It is the story of ingenuity and hard work. It is the story of a small piece of our past. Enjoy.
