  1. The photos are great. I have mixed feelings about my walk down Memory Lane as I realize that I left Winnipeg so long ago (1974) that I only recognize a few locations and others are like a dream I once had. A nice reminder of how things were for those of us whose memories seem to be fading. Thank you Rob.
