26 FIX & SMITH CRIMINAL LAW | KINGSTON POWELL BUILDING, 1907

 


 

Historic preservation is most effective when the new use is as close as possible to the original. This well-restored 1907 frame structure on the corner of Namayo Ave. and Clara St. is one of Edmonton’s few remaining pressed-metal, siding-clad boomtown buildings. It was built by entrepreneurial farmer and Irish immigrant Kingston Powell on the familiar pattern of commercial below, residential above.
