Portrait of Calgary
About the Book
There’s a lot more to Calgary than its reputation as an oil boom town might suggest. With the Bow River coursing through the city and the 1988 Olympic ski jumps perched on a ridge to the southwest, Calgary is situated in a diverse landscape. A vibrant downtown, a legendary Stampede and more outdoor activities within easy reach than you can shake a hiking stick at all give Canada’s Cowtown much more to display than spurs and Smithbilts.
Andrew Bradley provides dozens of full-colour photographs to the sites and scenes of the city. This spectacular photographic tour introduces the best Calgary has to offer, while accompanying text provides great information on what makes the city unique. Whether it’s the rolling foothills just outside of town, the jagged crags of the Rocky Mountains or the vast and diverse architecture, Portrait of Calgary provides a sample of everything.
