Mount Alfred

Mount Alfred is a mountain located at the Queen Reach arm and head of the Jervis Inlet within the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. The mountain is the highest in the portion of the mainland between Jervis and Toba Inlets, with its 1,318 metres prominence defined by the pass at the head of the Skwawka River, which feeds the head of Jervis Inlet; the unofficially-named Alfred Creek Falls, on Alfred Creek which drains off the mountain's glaciers southeast into the Skwawka, is one of Canada's highest waterfalls at 700 metres. The mountain was named during the 1860 survey by HMS Plumper who charted all of the area and was named after Alfred Edward "Affie", the third child and second son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of England, and, Duke of Edinburgh from his birth in 1844 until his death in 1900; the first ascent of Mount Alfred was made in 1929 by Arthur Tinniswood Dalton and Percy Williams Easthope.

Gamla bankhuset

Gamla bankhuset in Umeå, Sweden is a listed yellow two-storey stone building in Neo-Renaissance style, built in 1877. The building is located by the north stronghold of the bridge Tegsbron; because of the building's rounded corners it has been nicknamed Smörasken. The building is built of stone in a typical renaissance style by a floor plan from 1877 by Axel Cederberg at the Road and Waterway Construction Service Corps. Cederberg was at this time the city's technical advisor; the building is painted yellow. The bank hall and the offices were located on the ground floor and the upper floor was for the bank manager; the upper floor had a big apartment with a bachelor room. The building was Westerbottens enskilda banks' first bank building. After the great fire in Umeå in 1888 the possibility of opening a new bank building, more centrally located and had a better representative position became possible. In 1894 the bank moved its operations to the new bank building, what is Handelsbanken at Rådhusparken's east side.

The old bank building was instead used as an apartment building. The building has over the years housed various businesses, including being a temporary storehouse for Västerbottens museum's collections 1936-1946, Umeå City Library 1935-1954; the house is since 1980 a listed building, is now owned by Umeå Energi, which in 1992 did extensive restorations.
