This being the official opening weekend of the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights, it only seems appropriate to mark the occasion on this Winnipeg-based blog.
|Before . . . .|
But it is also appropriate for another reason; the Museum occupies part of what used to be known as the railway lands, or the old CNR downtown yard.
|About 40-50 years ago . . . .|
Today the area is home to The Forks, a wonderful meeting place for the people of Winnipeg, and the amazing Human Rights museum.
For a train guy, like me, the development of the area is welcome. But I do miss the trains that used to be found on this site.
|The site today.|
