A city in the province of Alberta Canada, Calgary is situated on the Bow River, in an area of foothills and prairie, approximately 80 km east of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies. On the edge of the Rocky Mountains’ rolling foothills lies this cosmopolitan city with friendly western hospitality. Calgary was the site of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games, home to the Olympic Hall of Fame, the annual Calgary Stampede and wonderful live theatre, museums, art galleries and major-league sports. In 1894 the City of Calgary was incorporated with a population of 6,000, growing slowly until an event occurred that determined the city's direction for the rest of the century. In 1914, just before the start of the First World War, huge reserves of oil were discovered in the surrounding hillsides. Half the local ranchers became instantly wealthy and a boom rocked the city. When the demand for oil dried up after the war, recession set in and many residents set off to seek their fortunes elsewhere.
