Description

A collection of over 140 photographs showing the history of Winnipeg from varying perspectives.

Remember the Beachcomber Restaurant, the Assiniboine Park Conservatory, and a very small but well-designed international airport with concrete walls? From the early fortifications of Upper Fort Garry, to the architectonic surge of Winnipeg as a transportation hub--and Canada's third largest urban centre--to the demolition of the iconic Eaton's department store, Old Winnipeg is the story of a city that never stopped reinventing itself.

With more than 140 photographs--many of them seen here for the first time--Old Winnipeg: A History in Pictures is a visual treat. It offers us a window into the past, showing life as it was, and stirring in us the emotions of wonder and curiosity about those who have gone before us and the lives they lived.
