Alberta Legislature, designed in the Beaux Arts style by Merrick and Blakey, was erected between 1907 and 1913. Edmontonians call it "the Ledge," and use it as a playground. Kids splash in the fountains and workers eat on the tree-shaded benches among colourful flower beds.
The Saskatchewan Legislative Building (below right) was created in a similar style between 1908 and 1912.
Manitoba's government building (below left) was done in a similar style by the same architects.
