Guillaume Perrault Coffee Print 4/13 - goods
Each of the prints from this series was originally featured in Guillaume Perrault's 2016 Calendar - the theme was coffee. The saturation of pink in the background and the intensity of the inks will vary slightly from print to print. The perfect gift for anyone with an eye for design and penchant for coffee.

$60.00This is Winnipeg on the 15th of May 1919, a day considered by many as the hottest moment during the Winnipeg General Strike, and it's one of a series of images Raymond Biesinger made between April of 2012 and November of 2014 showing a selection of Canadian cities. Consider it part of a getting-to-know-you exercise with the nation's architecture and history. You can imagine Main Street stretching up and down the print at its 2/3 mark, and note Winnipeg's beautiful old city hall (demolished in 1962) still stands left of the crowd and flag near the print's top.
