about

A breathtaking full-colour photography book celebrating the architectural splendour and cultural heritage of Winnipeg''s famed Exchange District, a National Historic Site and one of the city''s most vibrant artistic, commercial, and tourist hubs.

The Exchange District is the architectural jewel of Winnipeg''s downtown core, a thirty-block area featuring 150 remarkably preserved heritage buildings dating back to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These iconic buildings are among the best examples in North America of several turn-of-the-century architectural styles, including Romanesque, Italianate, Beaux-Arts, and Chicago School. From its origins in the 1880s as a commercial and industrial gateway to the Canadian West to its current revitalization, the Exchange exemplifies the spirit of a modern city embracing its past while creating a bright and dynamic future.

Treasures of Winnipeg''s Historical Exchange is a sumptuous visual feast for residents and visitors. With stunning photography highlighting the impressive scale and intricate detail of the Exchange''s imposing banks, sprawling warehouses, and commercial towers, this book will amaze and delight anyone interested in Winnipeg''s history and architecture. In addition, the book captures the renewed energy, creativity, hospitality, and entrepreneurial spirit that have invigorated the Exchange in recent years, making it one of Canada''s most vibrant up-and-coming neighbourhoods.
