Follow-up from David Parker, Herald Feb 13 2009:

I have a wonderful old postcard showing the Grain Exchange long before the Palliser Hotel was built. It's one of Calgary's landmark historic office buildings dating back to 1910 and was this city's first reinforced concrete office buildings.

It is still a fine office property, but last week it took on a different character in a new role as live theatre. Decidedly Jazz performed two shows a night for six nights throughout the corridors, stairwell and lobby area in which the audience moved up and down the six storeys before enjoying a final set in Beat Niq Jazz and Social Club in the lower level of the building.
