Kaslo city hall

Re: “The life and times of the Ymir hospital”

Greg Nesteroff credits the design of the Kaslo city hall to architects Ewart and Carrie. However, credit should go to Alexander Carrie alone. The Nelson Tribune of June 11, 1898 reported: “Mr. Carrie, of Ewart and Carrie, architects of this city, secured the $200 award offered by the city council of Kaslo for the best set of plans for an $8,000 municipal building in that city.”

Alexander Carrie designed many of the heritage building in Nelson and deserves to receive credit for his accomplishments.
