History
THE LIGHT FIXTURE WAS TAKEN OUT OF THE MARQUIS HOTEL BEFORE ITS DEMOLITION IN 1988. EMIL GUNDLOCK A MORTGAGE BROKER WORKED WITH THE HOTEL'S OWNERS ,JOANNE AND BOB CORBET, TO REFINANCE THE HOTEL FOR IMPROVEMENTS. GUNDLOCK SAID, HOWEVER, THAT THE ROYAL BANK WOULD NOT APPROVE THE REFINANCING AND, SUBSEQUENTLY, TOOK OVER THE HOTEL'S MANAGEMENT. DISCUSSING THE FUTURE OF THE HOTEL OVER A DRINK (WHILE THE BAR WAS STILL IN OPERATION), CORBET AND GUNDLOCK DECIDED IT WOULD BE A "SHAME" TO SEE THE HOTEL'S ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS DESTROYED AND LOST AND, THUS THEY DECIDED TO REMOVE SOME OF THE HOTEL'S FIXTURES, DOORS (ELEVATOR), ETC. GUNDLOCK CLAIMED IT WAS ENOUGH TO FILL A "TRUCKLOAD". RBC, HOWEVER, LEARNED OF THE SALVAGE OPERATION AND DEMANDED THAT THE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS BE RETURNED. GUNDLOCK KNEW SOME OF THE MATERIAL WAS RETURNED, BUT SOME WAS ALSO RETAINED. GUNDLOCK BELIEVED THAT THE MATERIAL ENDED UP IN THE RBC BANK MANAGER'S HOUSE. GUNDLOCK RECOGNIZED THE LAMP AND BOX THAT IT WAS PACKAGED IN, WHEN HE VISITED THE GALT IN EARLY 2007. SOMEHOW, THE FIXTURE CAME INTO POSSESSION OF TED STILSON WHO LATER PASSED IT ON TO THE DONOR IN 2005. GUNDLOCK WAS CONFIDENT THAT THE STYLE OF THE LAMP, IF NOT THIS VERY LAMP, WAS INSTALLED IN THE ROOM ATTRIBUTED TO SENATOR GLADSTONE WHO WAS THE FIRST NATIVE SENATOR AND FROM THE BLOOD RESERVE. THE ART DECO HOTEL OPENED IN 1928. IN ADDITION TO BEING THE FIRST BUSINESS IN LETHBRIDGE TO UTILIZE NEON SIGNAGE, THE HOTEL BOASTED AN ORIGINAL SEVENTY-EIGHT BEDROOMS AND A BANQUET AREA CAPABLE OF SEATING 250 PERSONS.

"KLINOSKIK BRITISH MADE" *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ROY CLINIC. THE FOLLOWING HISTORY OF THE ROY CLINIC WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM GALT ARCHIVES, DR. LOUIS ARTHUR ROY'S LETHBRIDGE HERALD OBITUARY, AND THE BOOK 'MEDICAL CLINICS AND PHYSICIANS OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA' BY GERALD M. MCDOUGALL AND FIONA C. HARRIS (1991). DR. LOUIS A. ROY WAS BORN IN MOOSOMIN, SASKATCHEWAN IN 1888. AFTER RECEIVING HIS EARLY EDUCATION THERE, HE PURSUED MEDICINE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, WHERE HE EARNED A BACHELOR OF MEDICINE IN 1911. AFTER COMPLETING AN INTERNSHIP AT THE ROYAL VICTORIA HOSPITAL IN MONTREAL, FOCUSING ON SURGERY AND PATHOLOGY, DR. ROY MOVED TO ALBERTA IN 1913. HE PRACTICED WITH DOCTORS DEVEBER AND CAMPBELL IN LETHBRIDGE FOR FIVE YEARS BEFORE JOINING THE ROYAL CANADIAN ARMY MEDICAL CORPS. HE WAS STATIONED IN A BRITISH MILITARY HOSPITAL IN KENT AS A PATHOLOGIST AND EARNED THE RANK OF CAPTAIN. UPON WAR'S END DR. ROY RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE AND WORKED WITH THE CAMPBELL GROUP UNTIL 1936, WHEN HE PARTNERED WITH DR. VALERIAN SWANCESKY (AND LATER, WITH DR. STEPHEN SCHMALTZ) TO CREATE THE ROY CLINIC GROUP. THE CLINIC WAS HOUSED ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE SHERLOCK BLOCK. DR. ROY WAS ACCREDITED AS A SURGEON BY THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF CANADA IN 1945, AND HE PRACTICED AT THE CLINIC UNTIL HIS RETIREMENT IN 1961. DR. ROY'S SON, DR. DOUGLAS GAETEN ROY ALSO JOINED THE PRACTICE IN 1945. DR. LOUIS A. ROY DIED IN 1964, BUT THE PRACTICE CONTINUED WITH ADDITIONS INCLUDING DR. DONALD ARTHUR RICE AND DR. JAMES ALFRED MCNALLY. THE CLINIC MOVED TO 2ND AVENUE SOUTH IN 1959, AND OPERATED THERE UNDER THE ROY NAME UNTIL BECOMING THE PARK MEDICAL GROUP IN THE LATE 1980S. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR HARCOPIES OF DR. LOUIS A.

ITEM BELONGED TO DONORS MOTHER, OTO KANASHIRO (1906-1992). KANASHIRO WAS BORN ON A SUGAR CANE FARM IN THE SEMI-TROPICAL ISLAND OF OKINAWA AND MARRIED BOKUJIN KANASHIRO IN YOMITAN, OKINAWA, JAPAN IN 1930. AFTER THEY MARRIED, MR. KANASHIRO, RETURNED TO HIS HOME IN HARDIEVILLE, ALBERTA. MRS. KANASHIRO WENT TO OSAKA TO WORK IN A SILK FACTORY AND WAITED HER TURN TO BE ALLOWED INTO CANADA. AT THIS TIME THE NUMBER OF NEW JAPANESE IMMIGRANTS WAS RESTRICTED. IN OSAKA, SHE LEARNED TO CARE FOR SILKWORM COCOONS, SPIN YARN, AND TO WEAVE VERY FINE SILK. AFTER THREE YEARS, MRS. KANASHRIO MADE THE DIFFICULT THREE WEEK JOURNEY TO CANADA BY BOAT, ARRIVING AT HER NEW HOME IN HARDIEVILLE, ALBERTA. SHE CAME TO SETTLE IN THE SMALL COMMUNITY OF APPROXIMATELY 50 OKINAWA FAMILIES. SHE QUICKLY LEARNED TO MANAGE HER DOMESTIC LIFE AND FOUND HER MAIN SUPPORT FROM THE WOMEN IN THE COMMUNITY AND HER EXTENDED FAMILY, IN PARTICULAR HER SISTER- IN-LAW, USHI KANASHIRO WHO TAUGHT HER HOW TO MAKE BREAD. OVER TIME, SHE PERFECTED THE ART OF BREAD MAKING, BAKING FIVE TO EIGHT LARGE LOAVES AT A TIME TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF HER GROWING FAMILY. SHE MADE THE BREAD FROM YEAST, WHEAT FLOUR AND USED LIQUID FROM BOILED POTATOES. SHE USED THE LARGE ENAMEL BOWL WITH THE LID TO MIX THE DOUGH AND ALLOW IT TO RISE. WHEN THERE DOUGH ROSE SEVERAL INCHES ABOVE THE RIM OF THE BOWL, IT WOULD BE PUNCHED DOWN AND LEFT TO RISE ONCE MORE. THE DOUGH WAS SHAPED INTO LOAVES AND PLACED THREE TO A PAN AND TWO FOR THE SMALLER BREAD PAN THEN BAKED IN THE OVEN OF HER COAL BURNING STOVE. FOR VARIETY, SHE WOULD MAKE CINNAMON BUNS OR DINNER BUNS FROM THE SAME BREAD DOUGH. OCCASIONALLY SHE USED THE BREAD DOUGH AND CUT OUT DONUT RINGS, DEEP FRY IT THEN COAT IT WITH SUGAR. SHE ALSO MADE KARINTO WITH THE BREAD DOUGH (SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO MAKE KARINTO). MRS. KANASHIRO BAKED BREAD USING THIS EQUIPMENT UNTIL THE 1960S WHEN HER CHILDREN LEFT HOME ONE BY ONE. SHE STILL OCCASIONALLY BAKED BREAD BUT IT WAS ONE OR TWO LOAVES AT A TIME USING SMALLER KITCHEN BOWLS AND PANS. FOR FAMILY IMAGES, PLEASE SEE RELATED ARCHIVAL DONATION 20091011000. PHOTOCOPIES OF PHOTOS CAN BE FOUND AS PART OF THIS DONATION'S PERMANENT FILE. REYKO NISHIYAMA'S STORY OF HER MOTHER BAKING BREAD CAN ALSO BE FOUND IN THE PERMANENT FILE.

REMOTE RADIO IS USED IN CONJUCTION WITH DISPATCH MICROPHONE, P19960112069 AND PHONE, P19960112070. SEE ALSO MOTOROLA REPEATER P19930061000. INFO BELOW WAS DEVELOPED FOR A POLICE EXHIBIT INSTALLED IN NOVEMBER 2007. DURING THE YEAR PRIOR, MUSEUM TECH KEVIN MACLEAN SPOKE TO NEARLY A DOZEN RETIRED AND SERVING OFFICERS IN ADDITION TO FORMER CIVILIAN DISPATCHER ANNE TODD AND CITY ELECTRIC DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEE BILL STANTON. WRITTEN SOURCES INCLUDED THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, ANNUAL POLICE CHEIF REPORTS AND THE BADGE AND THE BLOTTER. FOR AN IN DEPTH HISTORY OF THE RADIO, PLEASE REFERENCE THE PERMANENT FILE. AMONG ALL THE TOOLS USED BY POLICE TO CONDUCT THEIR WORK, FEW ARE AS SIGNIFICANT AS THOSE CALLED UPON WHEN POLICE NEED TO COMMUNICATE. FROM THE 1920S UNTIL THE MID-60S, “BEAT” PATROL OFFICERS WERE DEPENDENT ON A HANDFUL OF STREET-BASED “SIGNAL LIGHTS” AS THEIR SOLE MEANS OF POLICE COMMUNICATION (REF. ARCHIVAL PHOTO P19800122010-GP). CONTROLLED BY A SWITCH PANEL IN THE POLICE STATION, THE RED AND GREEN SIGNAL LIGHTS COMMUNICATED AN ELABORATE CODE TO PATROLMEN ON THE CENTRAL (1ST TO 6TH AVENUES BETWEEN 5TH AND 9TH STREETS) AND WEST (1ST TO 6TH AVENUES WEST OF 5TH STREET) BEATS. DEPENDENT ON THE LIGHTS’ ILLUMINATED COLOUR(S) AND SOLID-LIT OR FLASHING STATE, POLICEMEN KNEW IF THEY OR OTHERS WERE TO IMMEDIATELY PHONE THE STATION FROM ANY NUMBER OF HOTELS OR 24-HR BUSINESSES. IN 1952, THE FORCE INSTALLED ITS FIRST 2-WAY RADIOS IN ITS THREE TRAFFIC PATROL VEHICLES. SEVEN YEARS LATER, A CAMPAIGN WAS LAUNCHED TO ACQUIRE AND EVALUATE HANDHELD RADIOS AND, BY 1965, ALL MEMBERS, INCLUDING THOSE WALKING THE “BEATS”, HAD IMMEDIATE RADIO CONTACT WITH THE STATION. THIS SECOND GENERATION REMOTE RADIO UNIT (MOTOROLA) WAS ACQUIRED IN THE EARLY 60S AND FEATURED NEW SEMI-CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGY. FROM THE STATION, AUDIO SIGNALS WERE SENT OUT VIA LANDLINE TO A MOTOROLA TRANSMITTER/ RECEIVER LOCATED ON THE TOP OF THE LETHBRIDGE WATER TOWER ON MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE. FROM THERE, THE SIGNAL WAS TRANSMITTED THROUGH THE AIR TO VEHICLE-BASED OR HANDHELD 2-WAY RADIOS. ANN TODD WAS HIRED BY THE CITY POLICE FORCE IN 1962 AS A CLERK/ STENOGRAPHER. OVER THE YEARS, SHE OPERATED THE MOTOROLA RADIO (REF. PHOTO IN ARCHIVES COLLECTION), BUT WAS RESTRICTED TO ACKNOWLEDGING AND TRANSMITTING ONLY THE SIMPLEST OF MESSAGES. THE COMPLAINTS DESK CONSTABLE WAS THE PRIMARY USER OF THE RADIO, DISPATCHING CARS AND RECEIVING REPORTS. IN 1975/76, THE “RADIO ROOM” AND THE MOTOROLA RADIO WERE REPLACED BY A “COMMUNICATIONS CENTRE” WHICH, WAS SITUATED ACROSS THE HALL FROM THE COMPLAINTS DESK. NEW CENTRE EQUIPMENT INCLUDED A SWITCHBOARD, A REEL-TO-REEL INCOMING CALL RECORDER, A CANADIAN POLICE INFORMATION CENTRE (CPIC) COMPUTER AND A “DEAF PHONE” IN ADDITION TO MONITORING INTERNAL CCTV CAMERA MONITORS (REF. ARCHIVAL PHOTO COLLECTION). *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME DONATED BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES. FOR A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE COLLECTION, SEE RECORD P19960112001.

THIS SAUSAGE STUFFER WAS USED BY FOUR GENERATIONS OF MEAT CUTTERS IN THE GURR FAMILY AT THE SAME LOCATION OF 538 13 STREET SOUTH, WHICH SUCCESSIVELY HOUSED HOEFER & WOOD GROCERY, VALUE VILLAGE, AND AT THE TIME OF DONATION, LONDON ROAD MARKET. ON FEBRUARY 3, 2015 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED DUANE GURR AND HIS SON, THE DONOR, DAVID GURR, ABOUT THEIR FAMILY HISTORY WITH THE GROCERY STORES, MEAT CUTTING IN LETHBRIDGE, AND THE SAUSAGE STUFFER. DUANE SAID: “MY GRANDFATHER [ALF GURR] CAME [TO CANADA] AS A FOURTEEN YEAR OLD BOY… MEAT CUTTING [HAD BEEN] HIS TRADE IN ENGLAND… WHEN HE CAME HERE HE HAD A NUMBER OF JOBS… HE RAN BURNS’ MEAT MARKET… EVENTUALLY HE LEFT BURNS AND STARTED HIS OWN MEAT MARKET ON 3RD AVENUE SOUTH WITH HIS SONS, MY UNCLE AND MY DAD [CALLED] PALACE MEAT MARKET. [THEN] HE WAS THE MEAT MANAGER AT [HOEFER & WOOD GROCERY] FROM 1954 TO 1957… IN THOSE DAYS IT WAS QUITE UNIQUE TO HAVE A STORE THAT SOLD GROCERIES AND HAD A MEAT DEPARTMENT IN IT, AND A PRODUCE DEPARTMENT AND A BAKERY… IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FAIRLY NEW TO HAVE EVERTYHING UNDER ONE ROOF… [GRANDFATHER] HAD TO LEAVE HIS JOB BECAUSE HE LOST HIS EYESIGHT AND THE FELLOW THAT WAS BROUGHT IN… FRED SIEMEN, ACTUALLY TAUGHT ME HOW TO CUT MEAT AND TO MAKE SAUSAGE IN 1978 [AFTER] I WENT TO WORK FOR VALUE VILLAGE… THE FELLOW THAT HIRED ME IN 1973, [GERARD] WESTWOOD, [HAD WORKED] CLEANING THE MEAT DEPARTMENT AFTER SCHOOL FOR MY GRANDFATHER… HE SAID ‘YOU’RE ALF GURR’S GRANDSON’, AND I HAD THE JOB JUST LIKE THAT… IT WAS ACTUALLY [GERARD] THAT SAID IN 1978, ‘I THINK YOU SHOULD LEARN HOW TO BE A MEAT CUTTER BECAUSE IT’S IN YOUR BLOOD.’” DUANE CONTINUED: “MY DAD WAS ALSO TRAINED [IN MEAT CUTTING] BUT WORKED FOR THE CPR… HE ALWAYS [CUT MEAT] IN HIS BASEMENT… HE ACTUALLY USED TO MAKE SAUSAGE WITH ME TWICE A WEEK [AT THE STORE]… WE DIDN’T PARTICULARLY GET ALONG THAT WELL [BUT] IN THAT INSTANCE, WE GOT ALONG VERY WELL… WE DIDN’T DO A LOT OF TALKING WHEN WE DID IT. WE JUST HELPED EACH OTHER, AND HE TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO IT, AND IT WAS ACTUALLY A PRETTY FUN TIME… IT WAS A FAMILY THING… I ALWAYS ENJOYED IT, AND NOW DAVID IS MAKING SAUSAGES AND DOING A GREAT JOB… IT’S A BIT OF A LOST ART… THERE’S NOT A LOT OF GUYS THAT CAN MAKE SAUSAGE AND LINK IT ANYMORE.” ON THE SAUSAGE-MAKING PROCESS, DAVID SAID: “YOU START WITH YOUR MEAT… YOU GRIND THAT THROUGH ONCE, AND THEN ADD YOUR SEASONINGS [AND] MIX THAT TOGETHER… [THE MIXTURE] ALWAYS HAS TO BE COLD TO KEEP THE CONSISTENCY, AND TO KEEP IT OFF YOUR HANDS.” DUANE SAID: “THE COLDER THE BETTER; IT DIDN’T STICK TO YOUR HANDS AND WENT INTO THE CASINGS EASIER, AND THE WARMER IT GETS, THE HARDER IT IS TO WORK… WHEN YOU’RE DOING IT BY HAND, THE COLD [GOES] RIGHT UP TO YOUR BRAIN.” DAVID SAID: “YOU PULL THE ALUMINIUM CANISTER OUT, AND THEN THERE IS A NOZZLE ON THE FRONT OF THE CANISTER THAT YOU PUT THE SAUSAGE NOZZLE ON… WHEN YOU START CRANKING IT IN LOW GEAR SO THAT IT’S EASIER TO CRANK, IT START PRESSING IT THROUGH… YOU CAN EITHER PUT HOG CASINGS ON, THAT’S YOUR TRADITIONAL, OR THE NEW SYNTHETIC ONES ARE COLLAGEN.” DUANE SAID: “WE ALWAYS WORKED WITH NATURAL CASINGS, WHICH WERE HOG OR LAMB.” DAVID SAID: “THE SYNTHETIC CASINGS DON’T HAVE A LOT OF GIVE TO THEM, SO YOU HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL… WHAT’S NICE [ABOUT THIS TYPE OF STUFFER] IS YOU CAN HANDLE IT… YOU CAN CONTROL THE FEED YOURSELF SO IF YOU’RE GOING A LITTLE TOO QUICK YOU EASE UP ON IT… AFTER THAT YOU LINK THEM, SMOKE THEM, HOPEFULLY SELL THEM.” ON THE USE OF THIS SPECIFIC MACHINE, DAVID SAID: “WE HAD A SAUSAGE PROGRAM [IN 2008/09]… IT’S TOUGH TO GET IT GOING AND I WAS FAIRLY NEW AT CUTTING MEAT. THE FIRST TIME WORKING ON THAT, IT WAS JUST A NIGHTMARE BECAUSE NOTHING WAS RIGHT. I DIDN’T HAVE THE CASINGS ON HERE PROPERLY; I DIDN’T HAVE THE RIGHT CONSISTENCY WITH THE MEAT; I WAS IN THE HIGH GEAR… IT WAS A THROWAWAY BATCH BECAUSE THERE WAS JUST NOTHING RIGHT ABOUT IT. THAT’S HOW YOU LEARN… MAKING SAUSAGES IS FUN… I THINK ABOUT TODAY WHEN I’M WORKING IN THERE WITH THE PEOPLE WE HAVE AND WE REALLY DON’T SAY MUCH… ONE’S MIXING, ONE’S STUFFING, ONE’S LINKING… IT’S A PROCESS AND EVERYBODY’S WORKING… WHEN YOU THINK BACK AND SAY, ‘OH, MY GREAT-GRANDFATHER WAS DOING THE EXACT SAME THING WITH THE EXACT SAME MACHINE 60 YEARS AGO.’ THAT’S PRETTY SPECIAL.” DUANE SAID: “IT WOULD BE NICE TO KEEP IT BUT IT’S JUST NOT SANITARY ANYMORE. IT’S SOMETHING THAT MADE A LOT OF SAUSAGE AND WHEN YOU LEARN SOMETHING LIKE SAUSAGE MAKING AND YOU MASTER IT, IT’S PRETTY SPECIAL… IT LINKS ME TO MY OWN FAMILY…” SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT.
