A vintage modern chrome color photo postcard.
This building is a National Historic Site of Canada and in 1972, the building became known as the Jasper Information Center, however this postcard was created when the building was known as the Administration Building.
In 1913, the Jasper Park Superintendent commissioned architect A. M. Calderon to design this handsome building. Completed in 1914, the Jasper Park Administration Building was built using a rustic, architectural style. The administration offices and the superintendent's living quarters were on the ground floor. The upper floor held the library, museum, and drafting room. The basement housed a fish hatchery (I'd hate to live over a fish hatchery. Luckily, it was moved in 1941. A new house was built for the superintendent in 1936.)
