It exploded from a village of 2,700 humans in 1877 to an absolutely glossy city of 100,000 in precisely thirty years and through then had a school, newspapers, publishing organisations, a huge theatre, and a colourful mass of immigrants who flooded in to open up the West. becoming Winnipeg was once served with paddle-wheelers at the pink River, pink River ox carts, a Canadian-owned railway to St. Paul, Minnesota, and at last the CPR linking Montreal with the west coast. A Winnipeg Album is a pictorial effect of Winnipeg's vibrant, dramatic, and comparatively short heritage, compiled and with observation by means of John David Hamilton and Bonnie Dickie. Over 100 lovely black-and-white pictures list the early days of the town and hint a few of the dramatic occasions that made Winnipeg "Canada's Chicago."
