Nice thread. Especially good shots of Union Station and the Winnipeg Clinic (#53). There is quite a bit in Winnipeg even outside the Exchange District that you covered so extensively in the other thread. Love the aerials too.

Nice shot of the lights on the Electric Railway Chambers (#45), which was built by the Winnipeg Street Railway Co. in 1913 with all those hundreds of little light bulbs in its arches to wow the citizenry with the wonders of electric power. At a time when electric lighting was still something new, such a display would have been pretty spectacular.

Great pictures! Winnipeg's Downtown looks like it has a ton of great old buildings like the Exchange District.

What's with the date erected on the Bank of Montreal in the fourth picture? "MDCCCCXIII"? It should've been "MCMXIII". It's like called Super Bowl 40 "Super Bowl XXXX".
