Winnipeg City Print

Raymond Biesinger

This 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.

 Although we always try to have this print in stock, please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery in case we need to special order it in. Thank you!
