Tidy up the town!
His Worship intends to have all chimneys thoroughly inspected and to enforce the by-law concerning them. As soon as bricks are obtainable, all tin chimneys must be removed. Storekeepers will not, in future, be allowed to display goods on the sidewalk, nor to put trap doors in the pavement without permission from the chairman of the Works Committee. Everyone will be expected to provide a safe receptacle for ashes and to keep their premises tidy.
--Calgary Herald, May 12, 1887.
