Wow, I never realized what great old-school architecture downtown Winnipeg has! I can now understand why Winnipeg was once called "The Chicago of the north"! Thanks for the pics, flar! I look forward to seeing the city in person next year when I go, likely in March or April!

Here was another elegant Edwardian tower; the old Bank of Hamilton Building. My grandfather started out his working career there just before World War One. You can see the old Roman tripartite system of dividing a building into three distinct horizontal layers, but adapted for the new concept of taller towers.

In the winter, yes. Very cold. In the summer, hot. Very hot.

Love those shots of the old trees, especially the Elms!
