Custodial history

Scope and content

10612 - 97 Avenue.
The Park View Apartments marked a social transformation for the district when it appeared as the first apartment building in the river flats in 1914. Edmonton had emerged as the centre for the provincial government and working class people on Ross Flats welcomed new neighbours: Edmonton's professionals, businessmen, and businesswomen.
Designed and built by local contractors Nathaniel Purcell and Richard Foote, the eleven-suite apartment block satisfied the desires of the middle class to leave elaborate Victorian structures behind. The Edwardian building offered lavish simplicity, light, and air.
Among the accountants, secretaries and teachers who called the Park View home was the lawyer Lawrence Y. Cairns, who became an Alberta Supreme Court judge. Foote, the building's designer, lived for a time in the adjacent house he built in 1907. He later became a city building inspector and alderman.
