From the CBE website: “[the] original James Short School was built in 1904. The school was named after James Short, a pioneer, teacher, lawyer, and school board trustee. The cupola of the original school holds a place of honor in James Short Square on 4th Avenue S.W.”

James Short is a well-known downtown Calgary skatespot. Pretty much all of the ledges have been capped at this point but we can still enjoy some old footage like this quick clip of a Ryan Curry line (courtesy of Rob Thorpe):
