PE000368 - Drawing 1961 - Edmonton Civic Centre Development Project

Architectural drawing [diazo], scale 1”:100’, titled “Civic Centre Development Project”, City of Edmonton Planning Advisory Commission, Edmonton Alberta, April 6, 1961.

Part of a collection of materials related to the planned Edmonton Civic Centre in the 1960s. In the early 1960s, Webb & Knapp, a large land development company, entered into an agreement with the City of Edmonton to develop a proposal for a new downtown civic centre. The agreement contained provisions such that Webb & Knapp would fund the cost of the proposal, and if the proposal were to be approved, Webb & Knapp would receive considerable land rights in the development area as compensation. However, were the proposal to be rejected, the proposal itself was to become property of the City of Edmonton. The proposal by Webb & Knapp was ultimately rejected, but not until after the City of Edmonton Planning Commission developed its own proposal that, Webb & Knapp argued, made significant use of the original proposal. Webb & Knapp sued the City of Edmonton, ultimately winning a decision on breach of copyright in 1970.

Collection includes memorandum of agreement between the City of Edmonton and slated developers Webb & Knapp, architectural plans from Webb & Knapp as well as the City of Edmonton, cityscape photographs, and an artist’s concept rendering. PE000368 (F-8-0-0-5) to PE000375 (F-8-0-0-12).

  • “Cripple Tom.” Tells the story of a poor boy with one leg who converts his father to Christianity by preaching the story of the resurrection. The father asks for help in overcoming his addiction to alcohol.,
  • Two copies of “‘It’s All in the Blood’ ‘……And without shedding of blood is no remission’ (Heb. 9:22).” Tells the story of a prominent business man and church goer who is sick and visited by a friend. Argues that the only entrance to heaven is through believing in the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • “Delivered by the Power of God!” Tells the story of Old Tim, whose addiction to alcohol ruined his family and his life. Drawn to a church service by the congregation’s singing, Tim discovers the forgiveness of God and his long-lost son, who is the preacher at the church.
  • “‘It’s All in the Blood’ ‘……And without shedding of blood is no remission’ (Heb. 9:22).” Tells same story as above. Last page is titled “Just One Thing Wanting.” This page explains that all “good virtues in a man are just a row of cyphers” if that man has not accepted Jesus Christ.

This tract describes a vulture that eats a drowned buffalo so greedily that it does not notice its claws getting stuck in the carcass and then it is pulled by the current over Niagara Falls to its death (depicted on the cover). It compares this to a travelling salesman succumbing to drink and gambling and then dying poor and without Christ.
  • “Where Hell Is.” Tells a brief story of a tract distributor and quotes Heb. 2:1-4.

The third, “I am not Going to a Christless Grave – Are You?,” tells the story of an evangelist whose tract distribution saved a young conductor from going to a Christless grave.

  • “Beautiful Snow.” Tells the story of a fallen woman who died young in “the early part of the American war.” With her personal effects is the poem “Beautiful Snow” which is found and appreciated by American poet Thomas Buchanan Read. The poem is seven stanzas made of rhyming couplets which tell of the woman’s fall and salvation through Christ. It is followed by another poem titled “That Name,” which is about Jesus.
  • “Do You Need An Alarm Clock?” Explains that though people may be resentful of being awakened, many people are in spiritual slumber and require the alarm clock of the evangelist. Signed “C. D. Carter.”
  • “Did You?” Through a series of questions argues that atheism has never saved anyone from the power of sin. Is specifically critical of the work of Thomas Paine and Robert Ingersoll.
