From historic buildings to local characters, Alex Mair takes an entertaining look at Edmonton the way it used to be. This collection of local history captures the spirit of days gone by with photographs, newspaper headlines, biographies, and significant events from Edmonton's past.

Gateway City describes the days when boys on bicycles delivered groceries for the neighbourhood stores, the Alberta Legislature sat for the first time, ice wagons went up and down the streets, The Edmonton Journal produced its first newspaper, and Edmonton's landmark hospitals, churches, and hotels were being constructed. Filled with details and reminiscences, this is a fascinating tribute to Alberta's capital city.
