Heritage Winnipeg (NOVEMBER 14th)

“The main road in our early community was the King’s Road that led to Upper Fort Garry. It was changed to Main St. and became the main thorough-way of the Settlement. Business started and grew on this street until 1903 when Timothy Eaton decided to build his large retail store on Portage Ave, which was just a side street, so to speak. That store changed the whole landscape of the area and the city. Let’s examine that.”
