Abstract:

An accessible business history that considers the dynamic interplay between economic climate and the personal determination of business people in the late 1800s. The book provides insight into how entrepreneurs, retailers, manufacturers, bankers, farmers, and ranchers pioneered a booming business city. It discusses the people and activities that helped to create the conditions in which Calgary emerged as a city and the Bow Valley an important agricultural centre. Historical figures such as Isaac G Baker, Agnes K Bedingfeld, and James A Lougheed in the context of business in Calgary. The author also talks about the obstacles that faced business and civic leaders: how to promote economic growth of the city; how to create demand for goods and services; how to finance transportation improvements; how to assimilate substantial social and political change.
