Winnipeg – 1817 & 1877
The 2 historical murals in this post are the last 2 of 5 in this historical series by Jill Sellers.
Lord Selkirk signs a treaty with Chief Peguis that cedes part of The Red & Assiniboine river valleys.
I wish I had better pics, but the relentlessly blinding prairie sun was out in full force.
These murals are at 1812 Main Street.
In 1877 Western Canada’s first locomotive, The Countess of Dufferin, arrives by barge in Winnipeg.
The sun just bleached everything.
