Calgary Tower II

This is the second photo I post of Calgary Tower and for the second time, it is a reflection. I guess, the tower isn’t interesting enough to show a direct shot of it. I’m afraid I just need to give you the link to the first photo like this now: I found this photo while walking down the pedestrian street Stephen Avenue in the early evening.

Calgary Tower is a 190-metre tall observation tower in the heart of downtown Calgary. It was opened in 1968 and was the tallest structure in the city at the time. It was originally called the Husky Tower, as Husky Oil together with another company had proposed the building of the tower to celebrate the Canadian Centennial in 1967. The tower was renamed in 1971. Unfortunately, we were unable to visit the tower. It had been closed since July 12 due to a serious lift failure, which left eight people trapped in the broken-down lift. It didn’t reopen until November 2019.

Here’s a link to the large version:
