2006 Winnipeg history calendar published

28 August 2005

A fascinating collection of antique postcards of Winnipeg are featured in a new 2006 calendar. The calendar is produced by Historicards and is available for sale at locations around the city and on the company's web site.

Featuring twelve color postcards of Winnipeg in the early 1900s, it is a work of art, a lesson in history, a novel conversation piece, and a great gift for any Winnipeg history buff.

The calendar is fully bilingual (English & French), measuring 14" X 10" and printed on high quality glossy paper. Each calendar is protected by a cardboard stiffner and shrinkwrap.

Each of the twelve historical scenes is accompanied by a brief narrative on its history. A sample page is shown below. Scenes in the 2006 calendar include:

  • A view of Portage Avenue
  • Happyland amusement park
  • A view of Main Street
  • Union Station
  • Winnipeg Industrial Bureau
  • City Park Pavilion
  • Winnipeg Beach
