PHONE 328-7131 "Do you havt a ipart pair of glaliei for holiday Old city buildings part of survey By CATHIE RETI Herald Staff Writer Two Canadian Inventory Historic Building surveyors ar currently combing Lethbridge gathering information on build Ings constructed before 1914 Garret Palmer and Bob Ive- son started surveying the city in the middle of June, and wil continue until the middle of Aug ust. Lclhbridge is only one city included in a national survey initiated by the National His loric Sites Service of the de- partment of Indian affairs and northern development. The survey is believed to be the first comprehensive arclii lejiural inventory in the world created for a computerized in formation system. The project will take 10 years (o complete, beginning with studies of building exterior; and culminating with in-depth st'idies of the best structures. The first phase, to be com- pleted in 1973, will record the exteriors of buildings to produce a broad view of Can- ada's architectural heritage. The second phase will des- cribe the interiors and architec- tural details of buildings chosen from the results of Phase 1. In the third phase, some structures will be selected from Phase 2 for more detailed analysis. The inventory will survey more than 200 years of Cana- dian construction, from the oldest surviving buildings dat- ing from the late 1600's and primarily found in Quebec province, to those built in the early 1900s and found through- out Canada. One important objective of the Inventory is to disclose concen- trations of usable, attractive buildings in downtown urban areas, according to a pamph- let published by the parks branch. The inventory will also serve as reference for art his- torians and architects. Mr. Iveson said 100 buildings Minnie Thrall dies a week Is the quota Hie sur- veyors seek lo reach, usually succeeding. Besides just looking at the oulsides of the buildings lo see what they are made of and how they are constructed, Mr. Iveson said they spend a lot of time talking to people. He said this can be interest- ing, especially talking to some of Lhe older persons who know about the towns. The data compiled through the survey will be made avail- able, in catalogue form, to all provinces for use in their own planning in this field. The inventory will provide a basis for federal provincial co operation in preserving buildings with the greatest his- torical and architectural signi- ficance throughout Canada.
