YEG Iconic Structures

In October of 1987 The City of Edmonton erected this arch to mark the 'twinning' of the city of Edmonton with Harbin, China.  I photographed the arch recently as part of an assignment for the City of Edmonton.

Known as the 'Chinatown Gate', the structure marks the entrance to an area of downtown that once featured many Chinese businesses many of which have now closed or relocated making the future of the arch uncertain.  It looks rather glorious in the morning light don't you think?
