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.

Editorial Reviews

REMARKABLE
"In this remarkable book, we discover a diverse range of things, from opera houses to hotels, from bridges to parks, that were once vibrant and active but are now largely lost to memory. By sharing with us some previously unpublished photos and the stories they tell, Christine Hanlon does a marvellous job at rescuing these sites from obscurity and reminding us of what is so much fun about history." —Dr. Gordon Goldsborough, President and Head Researcher Manitoba Historical Society


TREASURE
"Christine Hanlon is a Manitoba treasure. She recognizes the value of place, and the beauty of belonging. In Old Winnipeg: A History in Pictures, she shows us (with many pictures seen for the first time) the Winnipeg we cannot see with our eyes...but that we know to be resident in our deep collective memory. Every Winnipegger should own this book!" —Danny Schur, Composer/Producer/Co-writer of Stand! the movie musical
