PE000369 - Drawing 1965 - Edmonton Civic Centre Development Project

Architectural drawing [diazo], scale 1”:100’, titled “The City of Edmonton Civic Centre”, The City Planning Department, Edmonton Alberta, January 1965 (Revised Jul. 27/65, Nov. 12/65).

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).

  • “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).

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.
