Winnipeg celebrates Canada’s Icelandic settlers, the first arriving in 1873-75, in this gorgeous mural.
They originally settled in Gimili, Manitoba, about one hour from Winnipeg.
Depicted below, the Vikings from Iceland came around 896 AD , but were not able to survive at that time.
Located at 536 Ellice Avenue, this well kept mural was painted in 1999.
Here’s the story!
As mentioned in the above Saga, Charlie Thorson, “Cartoon Charlie” second generation Canadian, became a famous animator responsible for many characters, including “Bugs Bunny”.
