Winnipeg"
Grain Centre of the Empire
Winnipeg made several starts at getting established. A fort
on its present site was built by French explorers in 1738: another was built in
1806, by an English trading Company, rebuilt in 1822, and again in 1835.
"Fort Garry" it remained until 1862; but its population in 1871 was only 215.
It was not until the Canadian Pacific was built that it began to go ahead. Now
it is one of the largest cities of Canada, the metropolis of all the prairies, and
the greatest grain market of the British Empire.
Beautifully situated at the junction of the Red River with the Assiniboine, the
city is handsomely built, possessing the magnificent Parliament Buildings of the
province and the University of Manitoba. It is a city of fine boulevards and parks,
of golf courses, wide streets and delightful driveways. Many years ago the
Canadian Pacific showed its faith in Winnipeg's future by building the Royal
Alexandra, one of Canada's largest and finest hotels; the Canadian Pacific has
here, too, immense workshops and two of the largest railway yards in the world.
As the west grew, so Winnipeg has grown. From the very first development of
that great grain empire, when the riches of the prairies were first uncovered,
Winnipeg—midway on the highway between two oceans—became the distributing
centre and market. Massive structures have sprung up to house its great mercantile
firms and industrial plants. The city is not only a trading point; it has enormous
flour milling, meat packing, steel and other plants, and shows an enterprise in
business and aggressiveness in merchandizing that is an example for the world.
