Hello, my blogging friends, today I am joining Chari over at Happy to Design
So this is a reprint of a post that I made just over a year ago, not long after I had begun blogging.
It's all about the capitol city of Manitoba, our beautiful province here in Canada.
Welcome to the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Winnipeg was incorporated in 1873. There is a lot of beautiful architecture here. A great example are the Legislative Buildings. It sits on the shore of the Assiniboine River and is constructed of Manitoba Tyndall limestone. As well as being the capitol of Manitoba, it is also the largest city in Manitoba with a population of approximately 700,000 people.
This is the fountain that lays between the Legislative building and the river.
The whole front of the building at dark. Inside the architecture is breath taking, I won't bore you with the details, but it is worth seeing if you ever pass through this city.
Do you see the Golden Boy standing atop the dome?
The Fort Garry Hotel and our beautiful flag!
Another view, I am told that Winnipeg was built in the middle of a natural forest. So there are very large, old trees everywhere you look.
St. Vitel Cathedral, it burned down some years ago and only the shell remains, but it is very picturesque, don't you think?
Thank you to my dear husband for taking these pictures.
And thank you dear reader for taking the time to stop by and say hi, so be sure to leave me a comment.
Have a very happy Sunday!!!
