Rossdale panorama, with Rossdale Brewery on the left, August 10, 1913.
"It’s been a brewery, a telephone exchange, a tile and timber outlet, an auto body shop, and may yet see life as a boutique hotel. Situated alongside the North Saskatchewan River in the Rossdale Flats, the Rossdale Brewery is one of the city’s great historic industrial treasures. The two-storey wood frame and brick- clad building is the oldest surviving unaltered brewery in the province, and now the City of Edmonton is designating it as a Municipal Historic Resource.
Opened in 1905 at what is now 9843 100th Street, the building was the original home of the Edmonton Brewing & Malting Company. The company was led by William Henry Sheppard, a local entrepreneur, Strathcona councillor and mayor, who ran the Strathcona Hotel beer parlour.”
