Calgary comes up James Short
Who is James Short and why does he deserve a park?
The internet tells me there used to be a James Short School on this spot. I can only assume the school sunk into the ground leaving the clock-tower projecting out of a tiny bit of lawn. The ‘park’ is a postage stamp green zone in the heart of Cowtown’s glass canyons.
Anyone who debates the cow-towniness of Calgary, I’ll just point out your new city cops with the big black hats and matching stab proof vests. Not that I’m calling you out Calgary – but the only thing I found to draw was a tin roofed shed!
