Heath Block up for sale (July 30, 2007)
Last updated Jan 30 2008 - see bottom post for more.

The Heath Block is at 615 15th Avenue SW. Originally the high-end tailor shop of Fred Heath, the first floor was converted to residential around 1930. The newspaper photo below is from a 'grand opening' advertising feature in the Calgary Daily Herald, August 24, 1912.

Other information: Heath's partner for a time was Robert Harold (R.H. Williams), who set up his own ladies ready-to-wear store in 1921. In 1928 he built his own store a block east at the corner of 15th Avenue and 4th Street, which remained an R.H. Williams store until the late 1990s. Now the Haycock Chiropractic Clinic.
