A couple of years ago I took some photos of the lovely LaMarchand Mansion on 100th Avenue in Edmonton.
At the time I promised myself that I would take a look inside one day, and today was that day. I had a few minutes to spare before an appointment nearby and so I went in and had a look around. There are businesses operating out of the west side of the building, so there is public access.
Here are the hallways with stained glass windows and architecturally appropriate wall sconces.
Off to the side of the first floor hallway is a lovely little lounge with a stained glass ceiling to match the windows in the hallway. It also has a copper hood to the fireplace and etched glass in the doors.
What I love the most, though, are the little cosy reading rooms tucked into the corners.
Here is the plaque which describes the history of the building.
So, thank you, Rene LaMarchand for this building, and thank you to A.M. Calderon for its design.
