Custodial history

These drawings were discovered in City Hall in 1965. They were sent to the original firm for restoration, a process which took four months. Once restored, they were returned to the City in 1966, and turned over to the Edmonton Public Library Board for display in the new Centennial Library. In 1985 they were sent to the Archives in order to be kept in environmentally controlled conditions.
