During a walk around Edmonton I passed by the John Walter museum which is located in the North Saskatchewan River valley downtown Edmonton. I didn't enter, but find it worth to mention it.
John Walter has become one of the wealthiest citizens of Edmonton around 1900. He started with building boats for the Hudson Bay Company and continued with various other businesses. In 1915 a flood destroyed his empire, he did not recover the losses until he died.
