Landmark torn down Carmangay loses a landmark building with sentimental attachments for many. The destruction of the three-storey bank of yesteryear and hospital of more recent times, Is now complete. Cannansav loses c? historic landmark Bv RUTH SHOIAKFR Herald News Service CARMANGAY What once was a busy bank in a bustling town, and laler a very active hoTHtel, has been torn down. This building was brought from Vancouver in sections and bolted together to become the Bank of Commerce, replacing a small building which had been moved into Carmangay from Claresholm After being used as a bank for 24 years it was left vacant in 1934. Carmangay and district resi- dents, who had been served by a number cf small, privately- owned hospitals, started talk- ing about establishing a larger hospital. About this time Dr. Dimock came to serve this hos- pital area and saw the nesd of larger premises than the three- bed hospital which was then in use. A temporary hospital board was formed and citizens co-op- erated in a united drive to se- cure a bigger and better hos- pital for Carmangay. Through the village council a lease was obtained on the prem- ises formerly owned and occu- pied by the Bank of Commerce located en main street. After the lease was secured corsider- work had to be done in re- designing and re-constructing the interior to make it into a hospital. Due to limited space an an- nex was built on the south side to serve as a kitchen. After the renovations were completed, equipment was se- j cured and installed. In June 1, 1935, patients and staff were moved into the new hospital. Three nurses, a maid, a cook ard a general handyman com- pleted the regular s'aff at this tirns and had the services of Dr. Dimcck of Barons and Dr. F'eeze of ChamnioTi. In 1933 it was voted to accept the hospital as a institution to sc.ve town- ships. The acquired I' a of Little Municipal Hospital. Tliis building served the area until a brand new hospital was erected and officially opened in February, 1959, by Dr. J. D. Ross, minister of health, and Rev Peter Dawson, MLA. Once again the huge build- ing stood empty for a hms. The Garth Skriver family oc- cupied it for a while and Mrs. Jure Skriver end Mrs. Blanche Cce had a beauty shop in one part of it and the local doc- tor, Dr. Hwozoscki had his of fice in another section. For the many people who worked in the building when it was a bank or hospital, and to those who were bom there, the place has many sentimental memories. Many of the married women living in the area today were nurses who came from Eng- land, e2ste'Ti Canada and other places in answer to an adver- tisement in a medical journal or newsoarcr that nurses were r.csded at the local hospital.
