Have you ever gone in the lobby of the old Bank of Hamilton on Main Street? They have one of the most beautiful oval spiral staircases.

Wow, this is very nice and surprising. Always thought about Winnipeg as some remote trapper settlement with dog sledges and log houses.

Amazing photos WPG_Guy! You make the city seem so alive!

I too found some old pictures I took over the years, and thought I would share. I am new to the forum so I didn't know if I should start my own thread or what? But most forums I've been to prefer you continue a current thread. So I hope this is ok.

Btw, I love this forum and it has got my creative juices flowing to get out and take some more recent, and better pictures of the city (especially since this autumn has been so mild). Apologies for the random, changing, often ugly "frames" used on these

Esplanade Riel



View Of City From St. Boniface (40 Pic Panorama)


CTV Building and new MB Hydro



Assiniboine Park Pavilion


Muddy Waters at The Forks (-40c this night!)


Winnipeg Police Station West End (so ugly it's beautiful! I actually got accosted by the police for taking this, but the mosquitoes were way more offensive)



Downtown Near Waterfront


Ft. Garry Place



New Skatepark at The Forks



180 deg. Panorama View North from Nassau Towers


The Pantages Theatre (18 picture panorama)



I'm open to requests and ideas for new places to shoot.

WPG_Guy, thanks, and I don't think I agree with you, your pictures are awesome.
If you ever feel like going out to shoot some buildings, let me know!

Agree, I enjoyed both. I'm always on the look out for Winnipeg pics. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for your great photos of Winnipeg. As my ancestors lay in this city, it makes me proud that you can show it in such splendor. Manitobans are so hardy in their nature, comes from growing up with such horrid temperatures and thinking its normal.

EastAdl, I lived for a short time (6 months) in Adelaide (went to Uni and stayed at Lincoln College). Winnipeg is very similar to Adelaide, I think, at least in its form, location, and in the kind of poeple there (minus the wine and plus a bit of colder weather). Its a big city that many Canadians rarely visit or know much about, with a small town feel, kind of in the middle. What about showing us some photos of Adelaide, been a while since I've seen a good Adelaide thread.

Yup, last winter I remember looking at my weather widget daily from November to nearly March and seeing -40c w/ windchill almost daily. I actually love that time of year!
I have some more pictures taken from The Forks during a particularly blustery -40c (before windchill) evening. My hands almost literally froze to the camera and tripod!
I will post once I have them edited.

Love the Manitoba capitol and the train station. Nice to see a lively street life. With the snow in -40 degree weather I can just hear the "squeak" while walking in my mind

The Jets should never have left!

No, they shouldn't. At least they still have the Bombers!
