Ross Flats by bkbinthecity

Ross Flats

Just down the street from the Donald Ross School from yesterday's post are the Ross Flats.
This building was built 1911-12 as apartments in a rapidly growing city. In 1925 the building was purchased by the Salvation Army and became the Grace Hospital for Children. In 1942 it became a stopping point for American soldiers passing through Edmonton during WW II.
Later it resorted back to its original life as apartments. Which is what it still is to this day
It sure went through quite a few changes, lovel shot and interesting info.

So much history. Do you know if it has elevators? I’m not sure I could live on the high floors without an elevator!
