It’s a new year but the same old story — another old building lost to fire. This time it was the hotel in Bowden, Alberta. I wasn’t able to locate any history as to when the building was built nor when it was last used but most news reports are saying the hotel had been abandoned for “some time”.
We were fortunate enough to photograph the hotel on our last pass through the area back in June of last year, another reminder to photograph these places when you get the chance.
