History

Fire Station #3

The land for the neighbourhood was annexed by the city between 1910 and 1919.[3] A 1913 map shows that the present-day Queen Elizabeth area overlaps two registered subdivisions of the day: the G.T.P. 1/4 Section in the west, and part of the Broadway Addition in the east.[4] During the speculative real estate market between 1909 and 1912, ambitious developers had a local lumber company built three stately brick homes at 1906, 1908 and 1910 York Avenue (at the intersection with Taylor Street). Though they were far away from the city core, developers anticipated that residential building would soon expand outward quickly.[5] Foundations for other houses nearby were built, but abruptly abandoned as a recession took hold in 1913. Meanwhile, the homes became known as the "Three Sisters" and were landmarks for travellers. The city eventually developed the land near the houses in around 1953.[6] The northmost "sister" was demolished to make way for Fire Station #3 - the two remaining homes survive to the present day.

Home construction begin in earnest until after World War II.[1] Gladmer Park, a complex of four-unit semi-detached houses, was developed in the 1950s as one of several Limited Dividend Housing Projects constructed in Saskatoon. Financing was provided by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation repayable over a 40-year period. A condition of the mortgage required that this project provide low rent housing over the 40-year term.[7]

Queen Elizabeth School was designed by local architect Frank J. Martin. It was built in 1953 and opened in September 1954.[8][9] Aden Bowman Collegiate was opened in 1958.[10]

Government and politics

Queen Elizabeth exists within the federal electoral district of Blackstrap. It is currently represented by Lynne Yelich of the Conservative Party of Canada, first elected in 2000 and re-elected in 2004 and 2006.

Provincially, the neighbourhood overlaps two constituencies. The area north of Adelaide Street lies within Saskatoon Nutana. It is currently represented by Pat Atkinson of the Saskatchewan New Democratic Party, first elected in 1986, and re-elected in 1991, 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2007. The area south of Adelaide Street lies within Saskatoon Eastview . It is currently represented by Judy Junor of the Saskatchewan New Democratic Party, first elected in 1998 and re-elected in 1999, 2003 and 2007.

In Saskatoon's non-partisan municipal politics, Queen Elizabeth lies within ward 7. It is currently represented by Councillor Bob Pringle, who was elected to city council in 2006 and re-elected by acclamation in 2009. Previously, he served in provincial politics as the NDP MLA for Saskatoon Eastview from 1988 to 1998.
