Parks and landmarks

Photos of Exhibition Park, Triangle Park, Old City Hall, New City Hall, the Horse Show Ampitheatre, and Portage and Main in Winnipeg. All of these parks and landmarks either do not exist anymore, or have changed significantly. Photocopies of Exhibition Park show where it was located between Selkirk, Jarvis, and McPhilips Streets and served as an entertainment event and industrial fair. It had a variety of circus activities, Ferris wheel, art, a stampede, games, and music for the public to enjoy from 1891 until the 1920s. Triangle Park, also known as Odeon Park, was previously located in the Exchange District. City Hall photographs depict the old "Gingerbread" City Hall and the City Hall that replaced it, as it is seen today. The Horse Show Ampitheatre is a copy of a postcard showing the exterior of the Ampitheatre. The last photo is an aerial photograph of Portage Avenue and Main Street with surrounding downtown area.
